Beetroot Grilled Barramundi

Aside from its vibrant splash of colour, beetroot adds a depth of flavour to any dish. The earthiness of the beets in the creamy sauce combined with a fiery ginger and garlicky kick, goes exceptionally well with the buttery sweet meaty profile of Barramundi.
Not only does the peppery arugula cleanse and refresh your palate, but it takes you on another gastronomical journey to the down under.
