WA local barramundi fillets panfried and drizzled with parsley butter sauce, served with roast potatoes, crunchy carrot salad and lemon wedges.
1. Set oven to 220°C. Halve or quarter potatoes. Toss with oil, salt and pepper on a lined oven tray. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden and tender.

2. Julienne or grate carrots, slice orange. Toss in a bowl along with mesclun leaves and cashew nuts. Drizzle with olive oil.

3. Thinly slice spring onions, chop parsley to yield roughly 2 tbsp and grate 1 tsp lemon zest. Cut 1/2 lemon into wedges.

4. Heat a large frypan over medium heat. Rub fish with oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook, skin side down, for 3-4 minutes, or until crispy. Turn and cook for further 2-3 minutes, or until cooked through. Set aside on a plate, keep pan over low heat.

5. Add prepared spring onions, parsley and lemon zest to pan with 3 tbsp butter and juice from remaining 1/2 lemon (see notes). When sizzling, pour over fish fillets.

6. Serve barramundi and parsley butter sauce with roast potatoes, crunchy salad and lemon wedges.

Add 1 crushed garlic clove to the butter sauce if you like.
