Barbecued Barramundi

Barbecued Barramundi

4 Fillets of barramundi, preferably still with skin on

Baste:
2 tablespoons melted butter
Juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons freshly chopped basil
1/2 clove garlic crushed
Salt and freshly grated pepper

Melt butter and combine with other baste ingredients. Baste the barramundi fillets with some of the mixture about 5 minutes before barbecuing (not too long before as the lime juice will start cooking the fish).
Pre-heat BBQ grill, turn down to medium heat and oil/butter the grill well. Place barramundi fillets on the BBQ grill skinless side down first.
Grill for about 3 minutes and baste while cooking. Turn carefully to skin side down with a spatula and continue cooking and basting for about a further 3 minutes. Timing will depend on thickness of fillets.

NOTE: The barramundi does tend to fall to pieces a bit.
