Laska Roasted Barramundi With Coconut Lime Potatoes

Laksa Roasted Fish with Coconut Lime Potatoes

I absolutely love the smell of spice shops. Whether it be mounds of brightly coloured powder in barrels at the market, or in pretty acrylic boxes like Gewurzhaus that I’ve recently discovered in Sydney.

My first visit to the gorgeous brightly-lit shop at The Strand was during a catchup with fellow foodie friend Aaron, and I’ve been going back for inspiration ever since.

This time, I bought myself a small pack of Laksa Lemak spice mix, which smells absolutely heavenly. I wanted to remix the laksa that I’d grown up with, and use the spices to roast a side of fish, and add a tangy hit of tamarind and lime. The result is a crispy-skinned barramundi on a layer of aromatic coconut potatoes, with a side of sour and spicy pickled shallots, just in time for the Easter holidays.

An old favourite in my parents’ house has just become a new favourite in mine. 🙂

    I have no confidence at all when it comes to cooking fish… I always overcook it!! I’m definitely going to try your recipe out. Beautiful, beautiful photos as always!
