Barramundi is found in Western Australia and is loved for its taste. In my opinion Barramundi is tastier than salmon. In this recipe the Barramundi is coated in curry powder, turmeric and cinnamon. The roasted vegetables are seasoned with Moroccan spices which goes well with the fish.

1 tbsp. curry powder
¼ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp turmeric
1 tbsp. coconut oil
4x200g Barramundi fillet
