  • 4 large barramundi fillets
  • 6 large Maris Piper potatoes
  • 2 large lemons
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary
  • 1 small garlic bulb cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons small capers
  • 1 small red onion, peeled and finely diced
  • 150g feta cheese, cubed
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley to serve
  • 400g rocket, to serve


  • Heat the oven to 180C or 160C fan-forced. Brush a large ovenproof dish with a little olive oil.

  • Season the fish with salt and black pepper. Drizzle a little olive oil over the fish as well.

  • Put the tray in the oven and roast for 8–10 minutes until the fish is cooked through.

  • While the barramundi roasts, start preparing the potatoes. Scrub them, and either cut them in half or cut them in quarters, whichever way you fancy.

  • Then submerge them in a separate large ovenproof pan of cold salted water.

  • Add a drizzle of olive oil to keep them from sticking and bring them to a boil.

  • Simmer the potatoes for 10 minutes or until they are almost cooked; they should still have a slight crunch to them. Set aside.

  • In a large pan, add lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil. Toss the lemon slices in the oil and herbs. Cook for a further 2–3 minutes.

  • Crush the garlic and put it in a pan with the lemons and their juices. Add the feta cubes.

  • Once the potatoes are cooked, add them to the pan along with the capers and onion. Toss all the ingredients together and add pepper to taste. Cook for a minute or two or until the onion is soft.

  • Drain the potatoes and lay them in the serving dish along with the fish.

  • Add the parsley, and pour the sauce over the potatoes and fish.

  • Serving Suggestions: Serve with a side of rocket salad and enjoy!
