Barramundi, reportedly a name given to the fish by indigenous Australians, means large-scaled silver fish. It is also called Passion Fish. In an Australian Aborigine Dreamtime legend, part creation story, the barramundi transforms itself into the moon.
Barramundi is comparable to wild sea bass. It is recommended for its sweet, buttery flavor and is packed with omega-3 fatty acids. This barramundi is farmed in Vietnam under strict conditions. Believe it or not, because of its low environmental impact—low use of chemicals, effluents monitoring, and transparency—Seafood Watch rates this Vietnamese-farmed barramundi a "Best Choice." Low mercury. Kosher.
