  • 1/2 cup coriander leaves , chopped
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup natural yoghurt
  • lemon wedges, to serve


  1. Add the ground coriander, ground cumin and ground turmeric into a shallow dish and mix well. Add fish fillets and turn to coat.

  • You can substitute the barramundi fillets for any firm white fish such as snapper, hake, ling, perch, mackerel, cod, seabass or coral trout.
  • A drained can of mango in juice can be used instead of fresh mangoes. Pawpaw (papaya) can also be substituted.
  • Bottled lime juice can also be used in place of a fresh lime.

Healthy tip!

Chilli, lemon and herbs add flavour - great alternatives to butter and salt!

    Great dish - loved by all the family. Worked well with Salmon as I couldn't get barramundi. Will definitely cook this again
