Chargrilled barramundi with fennel and asparagus salad

Plate up a winning family dinner tonight with our chargrilled barramundi. It’s a heart-healthy recipe that’s loaded with tasty veg.



Note: + cooling time



  • 2 corn cobs, husks and silk removed
  • 1 tsp ground paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tbs finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 4 x 100g Coles Australian Ocean Barramundi Portions, skin removed
  • 2 bunches asparagus, trimmed, sliced lengthways
  • 350g fennel, trimmed, thinly sliced
  • 60g baby rocket leaves
  • 1 spring onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbs white wine vinegar
  • 2 cups steamed brown rice
  • 1 long red chilli, cut into matchsticks (optional)
  • 2 tbs Coles Seed Mix



Heat a barbecue grill or chargrill on medium. Cook the corn, turning, for 10 mins or until tender and lightly charred. Set aside to cool slightly. Use a small serrated knife to cut down the side of the corn to release the kernels. Transfer to a bowl.


Meanwhile, combine the paprika, cumin, coriander and parsley in a small bowl. Rub the barramundi with the spice mixture and lightly spray with olive oil spray. Cook on the grill for 3-4 mins each side or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.


Place the asparagus in a heatproof bowl. Cover with boiling water and set aside for 1 min to stand. Refresh under cold water and drain well. Add asparagus to the corn in the bowl with the fennel, rocket and spring onion. Drizzle with vinegar and gently toss to combine.


Serve the barramundi with rice and salad. Sprinkle with chilli, if using, and seed mix. Season with pepper to serve.

Tip: Swap the brown rice for 1 slice chargrilled rye sourdough per person, if preferred.
