  • 2 x 200 g barramundi fillets
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 300 g oven-baked chunky cut chips (97% fat-free)
  • 2 tablespoons rice flour
  • 2 teaspoons lime-infused oil (see Cook’s tip)
  • 3 cups mixed baby salad leaves, washed
  • 1 carrot, washed, peeled and sliced into long ribbons
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • zest of ¼ lime
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 4 baby beetroots, canned, drained and cut in half
  • pepper, to taste


  1. Cover barramundi with lime juice and set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Heat oven to 240oC/220oC fan-forced. Place chips on a baking tray in a single layer.  Cook for 12–15 minutes until golden brown (there is no need to turn them).
  3. Drain fish. Put rice flour on a plate and coat fish, shaking off any excess flour.
  4. Heat oil in a medium-sized non-stick frypan over medium heat. Add the fish and cook for 3 minutes each side, or until light golden brown and cooked through.
  5. To make the dressing, mix together oil, lime juice, zest and mustard in a small bowl or shake in a jar, then dress the salad leaves and carrot.
  6. Place fish, chips, salad and beetroot on 2 plates, season with pepper and serve.
