  1. Step 1

    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.
  2. Step 2

    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.
  3. Step 3

    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.
  4. Step 4

    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.
