A fresh water game fish, native to Northern Australia. Large specimens can weigh up to 120 lbs (50 kilos). Its flesh is very-highly regarded, but best simply fried, grilled or barbecued (and served with a wedge of lemon) without any elaborate sauce to disguise their soft texture and delicate flavour. Barramundi are now being commercially-farmed at Lyndhurst in Hampshire and are available in the best fishmongers, restaurants and supermarkets.
