Barramundi is an Aboriginal word meaning “big scales”. It is, without a doubt, one of the most sought after fish in restaurants and with good reason. In Australia, restaurant-goers can enjoy both farmed Barramundi and wild caught Barramundi, the latter by far the best!
In the Northern Territory, wild caught Barramundi are harvested mainly along a small section of the coastline. Unlike the farmed Barramundi, which can occasionally have a slightly muddy flavour, the wild caught Barramundi is generally a salt water fish and has a much firmer and flakier flesh. In the Northern Territory, careful management and strict regulations have made it a sustainable food source.
At Wildman Wilderness Lodge, we are committed to only using wild caught Barramundi from the Northern Territory. This means a better quality fish from the sea to your plate, available every night of the week. Our Head Chef Michael Collins lightly sears this stunning fish and uses a delicate Beurre blanc (or butter) sauce, which is the perfect accompaniment.
Wildman wild caught Barramundi is available daily at Wildman Wilderness Lodge. Check out our website for more information about our restaurant and bar.
