What Is It

Barramundi is a tasty white fish that is especially common in Thailand and Australia. It’s a very big freshwater fish that goes to sea for spawning. Commonly available species vary from 3 to 30 pounds. Barramundi is like wild Sea Bass, but more juicy and soft. The white flesh has a quite high oil content, and flaky.

You aren’t alone if you consider cooking and preparing fish daunting or aren’t a fan of the fishy aroma of some kinds. A lot of people find barramundi convenient to cook at home as it doesn’t give off a powerful odor the same as salmon or certain fatty fish.
It fits well with any recipe including white fish and all sorts of cuisine.

Frozen Fish Direct’s frozen barramundi has flaky flesh that is a perfect base for fragrant spices, particularly chillis and lemongrass. Each part comes boneless, with intact skin, ready to cook. For our dear customers, we hand-cut and flash freeze each fillet, therefore taking all the hassle off and stress in storage and preparation.

Processing

The barramundi of Frozen Fish Direct is caught, filleted and frozen on the same day.
When fish are frozen just hours after they are harvested, their degradation stops and their freshness preserves.

We are using an innovative belt freezer system that allows us to cool the fillets down to-30°F and seal in freshness in less than 10 minutes. In fact, several wild fish captured on the sea are frozen in order to maintain quality and thereafter gradually defrosted before cooking.

Barramundi is generally accessible as a fresh frozen whole fish and as a frozen fillet.
Every fillet is roughly 8 oz., a healthy portion for one person, and the fillets are specifically frozen and vacuum sealed, therefore you just need to thaw as much pieces as you will need.

Benefits

Barramundi has a nice, subtle taste but does not carry a strong smell that makes it more irresistible to all the world’s seafood enthusiasts. The fish meat is easy to prepare and cook, and the fats compared to other fish types are low.

Barramundi is also loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids with only half the calories in salmon,. Omega-3 fatty acids are proven to strengthen both the brain and heart health.

It is also low in omega-6, that you’d like to consume moderately due to its inflammatory quality. This is the best source of protein as it is lean and fulfilling! Each bite is overflowing with protein! You could have a greater chance of preventing chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease and cancer if you consume most protein from plant-based sources, fish or poultry than those from red meat.

Much like most marine species, barramundi has amazing amounts of selenium, calcium, zinc, magnesium as well as other essential nutrients that the body uses to support the bones. Barramundi also contains vitamin A, an agent directly relevant to eye and vision protection.

FAQS

Is frozen barramundi good?
Frozen fillets enable you and the chefs in your favourite restaurants to defrost and use just what you’re going to eat, reducing wastage. Our barramundi could last up to 2 years in the freezer, with no effect on texture, freshness or flavour. It defrosts in just 15 minutes, but it can also be cooked directly from the freezer.
How do you defrost barramundi?
Start with firmly frozen barramundi, no need to pre-thaw in the fridge. And don’t remove the vacuum pack before thawing. Defrosting “naked” fish down into the water makes it discoloured and tasteless. Just use cold tap water to defrost, reducing the chance of bacterial growth. Immediately use the thawed fish to achieve the best output!
Can I cook fish fillets from frozen?
You may skip the thawing stage and cook the frozen barramundi right out of the freezer. In your recipe, you’ll just add a few minutes to the cooking time to compensate for lack of defrosting, then you can poach, steam, roast, broil or barbecue the barramundi right from the freezer!
Is barramundi a clean fish?
If you consider cooking fish a challenge or you just don’t like the fishy smell of certain fish types, then choose barramundi. It is a pleasantly mild flavored white fish. It has a soft, light texture that makes it perfect to those who are uneasy about seafood. It has a fresh, buttery taste with a delectable, meaty consistency.
Is it appropriate to defrost frozen barramundi under hot water?
Be sure you never thaw fish at room temp or in hot or warm water as bacteria can grow quickly. A fast and common way to defrost fish is using cold water. The fish should be kept in a sealed bag for protection and taste retention and immersed in water until it is thawed.
