Italian Style Baked Barramundi with Bacon Sauce

Baked Barramundi with Bacon Sauce

My friend Michelle turned me on to Barramundi a little over a year ago and I instantly fell in love. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the ease and flavor of this Italian Style Baked Barramundi with Bacon Sauce.

If you’ve never tried Barramundi I recommend you give it a whirl. It’s such an easy white fish to flavor. Well I guess most fish is pretty easy to make but Barramundi allows you to dress it up with almost any flavor you’d like.

Italian Style Baked Barramundi with Bacon Sauce


  • 2 barramundi, defrosted
  • dried basil, sea salt and coarse ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3 strips bacon, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 3-5 sprigs fresh oregano or 1 tablespoon dried oregano


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Season the barramundi with dried basil, salt & pepper on both sides. Lay on a sheet of parchment paper (for easy cleanup) on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
  3. While the barramundi is baking chop the bacon into bite size pieces and cook for 2-3 minutes in a medium-size sauce pan, stirring constantly.
  4. Add the garlic and cook 1-2 minutes.
  5. Add the chopped tomatoes to the bacon and stir to combine.
  6. Add the onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper and oregano and let the sauce come to a boil. (This should happen right around the time the barramundi finishes in the oven.)
  7. Plate the barramundi, spoon the tomato sauce on top and serve.
  8. Enjoy! :)
