Salsa fresca is our favourite way to feel warm weather vibes all year round. It’s juicy and tangy, with a touch of heat, making it the perfect complement to crispy, Mexican-spiced barramundi. The feisty fillets are served on top of steamy yellow rice and finished with lime crema and salsa. No matter the temperature, one bite of this delicious dish will make everything feel a whole lot sunnier.
