Preheat the oven to 200ºC/180ºC fan-forced.


Roughly chop the basil. Core and quarter the tomatoes. Peel and crush the garlic cloves. Drain and rinse the cannellini beans. In a small bowl combine the olive oil, half of the basil, and the HelloFresh paprika, mix to combine and leave aside to infuse.


Heat some oil in an ovenproof pan over a medium-high heat, season the barramundi on both sides with salt and then place the fish into the pan. Jiggle the pan a little bit so that the flesh doesn’t stick, cook for 3-4 minutes and while the barramundi is cooking dress with a spoonful of the infused basil oil. Turn the fish over and place the pan into the oven (if you don’t have an ovenproof pan simply place the fish onto a lined baking tray) and cook for a further 3-5 minutes.


Meanwhile, heat some oil in a pan over a medium-high heat and add the tomatoes and garlic, dress with a bit more oil and the balsamic vinegar and cook for 3 minutes or until the skin of the tomatoes begin to blister. Now add in the cannellini beans and the remaining basil and cook for 1 minute, or until warmed through. Remove from the heat.


Divide the tomato and cannellini braise between plates and serve the barramundi on top with a few good spoonfuls of the remaining basil oil. Did you know? As a general rule, male barramundi tend to measure less than 80cm whereas female barramundi measure more than 100cm.
