Delight in the Flavors of Barramundi: Grilled to Perfection with KINGFISH

Barramundi, a highly nutritious fish found in the sea, can be prepared in various ways, including steaming, hotpot, and frying. However, among these methods, grilled barramundi stands out as the most beloved choice due to its natural sweetness, ease of preparation, and significant time savings. Join KINGFISH in the kitchen and let’s prepare this enticing steamed barramundi.

I. Grilled Barramundi in Silver Paper

One of the most delicious, simple, and easy-to-make dishes using barramundi is grilled barramundi. In the following, KINGFISH will guide you on how to prepare and marinate barramundi for grilling in silver paper for that perfect flavor.


To make grilled barramundi, you’ll need these simple ingredients:

  • 1 barramundi fish
  • 1 tablespoon of cooking oil
  • Some lettuce
  • 2 lemongrass stalks
  • 3 chili peppers
  • A pinch of salt or seasoning powder

Preparing the Ingredients

Rinse the fish with salt to eliminate any fishy odor and clean the insides. Use a knife to make slits along the fish’s body. Finely chop the lemongrass and chili peppers and add a few slices of lemongrass to enhance the dish’s flavor.

Marinating the Fish

KINGFISH will show you how to marinate barramundi for grilling to make it rich in flavor. Follow these steps:

  1. Mix 2 tablespoons of salt with the finely chopped lemongrass and chili peppers. Then, add 1 tablespoon of seasoning powder and mix the ingredients together.
  2. Use disposable gloves to stuff the spice mixture into the fish’s belly and around its body.
  3. Evenly spread the spice mixture on the fish. Repeat this process 2-3 times to ensure the spices are well distributed. Marinate the fish for about 20 minutes before grilling to allow the flavors to penetrate the fish meat.

Grilling the Fish

Wrap the fish tightly in silver paper. Using charcoal fire will give the grilled fish an enticing smoky aroma. Grill the fish evenly to ensure it’s cooked thoroughly and doesn’t get burnt. After 30 minutes, your grilled barramundi will be ready for you to enjoy.

The Result

After grilling, the fish will have a fragrant aroma of lemongrass and chili peppers while retaining its natural sweetness and freshness.

II. Salt and Chili Barramundi

Apart from grilled barramundi in silver paper, you can also try making salt and chili barramundi, a delicious and appealing dish.


Making salt and chili barramundi is easy, and the ingredients are readily available:

  • 1 kg barramundi fish
  • 100g green chili peppers
  • 60g condensed milk
  • 50g white sugar
  • 15g salt
  • 2 seedless limes
  • 1g lime leaves

Preparing the Ingredients

  • Choose fresh barramundi fish, preferably live. Clean and wash the fish with diluted saltwater and then drain it.
  • Rinse the chili peppers, remove the stems, cut open, remove the seeds, and finely chop them.

Grilling Salt and Chili Barramundi

  1. Marinate the fish by first coating it evenly with green chili peppers. Then add fish sauce, salt, sugar, and seasoning powder. Mix the ingredients together and let the fish absorb the flavors for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Wrap the fish tightly in silver paper.
  3. Prepare a charcoal grill or an electric oven.
  4. When the fish is cooked, open the silver paper to let the liquid drain out.


Place the fish on a plate and garnish with some herbs, such as coriander, mint, and tomatoes, for a visually appealing dish. You can also serve it with green chili dipping sauce to enhance the flavor. This dish pairs perfectly with steamed rice and is incredibly satisfying.

III. Important Notes for Barramundi Grilling

When grilling barramundi, here are some important tips to consider:

  1. Choose Fresh Fish: Ensure you use fresh fish as it is crucial for a delicious dish. Look for fish with fresh, bright skin and no unpleasant odors.
  2. Prepare the Fish: Rinse the fish with saltwater to remove impurities and contaminants. Lift the fish out of the water and pat it dry with paper towels or a clean cloth.
  3. Adjust the Seasoning: Before grilling, you can prepare some spices to enhance the flavor of the fish. You can use salt, pepper, minced garlic, scallions, finely chopped chili peppers, olive oil, and other spices to your taste.
  4. Grilling the Fish: Before placing the fish on a charcoal grill or in a frying pan, brush the fish with a layer of oil to prevent it from sticking. Grill the fish for 4-6 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the fish.
  5. Check for Doneness: To check if the fish is cooked evenly, use chopsticks or a sharp knife to press into the fish meat. If the fish easily separates into pieces, and the meat is translucent, it is done.
