2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Make the tomato-dill rémoulade

  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal.
  • Coarsely chop the dill.
  • Zest the lemon and juice half, keeping the zest and juice separate; set aside the juice for the salad. Cut the remaining half into wedges for garnish. [Zest both lemons and juice 1 lemon; cut the remaining lemon into wedges.]

In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, scallions, dill, lemon zest, and spicy rémoulade and stir until blended. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal. 


Prep and cook the fish

  • On a plate or shallow bowl, season the cornmeal with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer.
  • Transfer the fish to a plate; season lightly with salt and pepper. 

Working with 1 fillet at a time, dredge the fish in the cornmeal, turning to coat; shake off any excess. 

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Add the fish (skin side down for the barramundi) and cook until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky and the crust is golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. While the fish is cooking, prepare the salad. 


Make the arugula salad

  • Thinly slice the radishes. 

In a large bowl, toss together the arugula, radishes, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice, and 1 to 2 teaspoon oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper and more lemon juice.


Transfer the arugula salad to individual plates and top with the fish. Spoon over the tomato-dill rémoulade and serve with the lemon wedges.
