Recipe by Emily Nagy


  • 500g Barramundi Fillets (or preferred white fish)
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1.5 lemons
  • Capers
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Salt
  • Pepper





Step 1

Heat the olive oil in a large pan on medium-high heat. Pat the fish dry with paper towels then season with salt and pepper. Dredge in flour and shake to remove excess.

Step 2

Add the fish to the pan and cook a few minutes on each side until cooked through. Remove and wrap with foil to keep warm.

Step 3

Cook angel hair pasta according to box instructions. Add spinach to small pan on medium heat with garlic, salt and pepper until cooked.

Step 4

For the sauce, add white wine to the same pan, whisking for about one minute. Let simmer and reduce about halfway. Add chicken broth and garlic, simmer for 5 minutes. Add lemon juice and capers and stir. Mix in butter.

Step 5

Pour sauce onto fish and pasta and serve with spinach. Garnish with parsley and serve.
