A wonderful poached barramundi fish with greens recipe

  • Author: Martyna Candrick
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x



For the Masterstock:

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup Stock Merchant’s Sustainable Crab Stock OR gluten-free vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp Tamari
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp Chinese five spice
  • 1 tsp brown sugar

For the Steamed Greens:

  • 4 broccolini stems
  • 8 snow peas, trimmed
  • a handful of green beans, trimmed

For the Poached Fish:

  • 2 (150g / 5oz) Barramundi fillets, skin off – try to find a thicker cut, not tail cut

To serve:

  • a few coriander leaves
  • (optional: chilli flakes)


To make the Masterstock:

  1. Place all Masterstock ingredients in a saucepan large enough to hold your fish fillets inside and steamer basket on top of it later. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  2. In the meantime, prepare your Greens for steaming:
  3. Slice beans and snow peas in half then again in half lengthways. Trim broccolini stems by about ½ an inch. Cut in half across.

To Poach the Fish and Steam your Greens:

  1. Once the stock has come up to the boil, reduce heat to a simmer and gently place barramundi fillets in the stock.
  2. Place greens in a steamer basket and place on top of the pan. Cover with a lid and allow both to cook for about 8 minutes.

To serve:

  1. Divide steamed greens between serving bowls. Gently lift the fish out of the stock and place on top of the greens – the fish will be very tender, you might need a long spatula to do this.
  2. Pour stock over the dish and dress with some coriander leaves. (Spirnkle with chilli, if using). Serve warm.
