Crispy Skinned Barramundi with Citrus Fennel Salad

The colorful side of seafood

If there was such thing as sunshine on a plate, this dish would be it. Instead of masking the delicate flavor of barramundi with a heavy sauce, Emily lets the fish shine by simply seasoning it then searing it in a blazing hot pan until the skin crisps. Alongside, she serves a sweet, tart, and crunchy salad of salad of assorted citrus, thinly sliced radish, and shaved fennel. The mild anise flavor of the fennel, bite of the radish, and bursting tart-sweetness of blood oranges and grapefruit make this salad a refreshing accompaniment to the fish. Serve this dish on a big platter for an elegant dinner party with friends or individually plated for a light weeknight meal.

Cooking should be fun! Whether it’s cookies for the kiddos or a cocktail for the grown-ups, I am constantly inspired by seasonal flavors and anything that will bring my family together around the dinner table. Because that’s what food is really all about.

Emily is the food photographer and recipe developer behind the mouthwatering food and cocktail blog, Jelly Toast. Her recipes are seasonally-inspired and relaxed, but just elegant enough to warrant inviting a few friends over for a fun dinner party. What we absolutely can’t get enough of, though, is Emily’s hilarious writing style. She has a way of bringing her recipes to life through her words, leaving us just a little bit jealous that we aren’t that funny! Her food is made from scratch and will leave both kids and adults alike feeling comforted and satisfied. Pair that with a few of her delicious cocktails and you’ve got a tasty evening ready to go.
