Soy and Sesame Marinated Barramundi
The barramundi is so good even Alba’s cats love it! 🐱🐈
“Funny note: my cats will not eat fish bought from the frozen section at the grocery store or Box stores. As soon as I started cooking the Barramundi my cats went crazy! So I cooked them a small piece with no seasonings. They devoured it! So kitty approved as well! 😂”
The rest of us like a little seasoning, so Alba (on Instagram at @albacooksnbakes) cooked up this tasty recipe for Soy and Sesame Marinated Barramundi!
“This heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acid enriched fish is clean with a buttery flavour, meaty texture, and is perfect for any picky fish eater!”
