Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Quarter potatoes. Add potatoes, 2 tsp salt and enough water to cover (by approx. 1 inch) to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Simmer uncovered until fork-tender, 12-14 min. Drain and return potatoes to the same pot, off heat.
Meanwhile, cut tomatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Roughly chop parsley. Peel, then thinly slice shallot into 1/8-inch slices. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Drain, then tear olives in half.
Add vinegar, mustard, and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then whisk to combine. Add shallots. Toss to coat. Set aside.
Add potatoes, 1 tbsp butter, 1/4 tsp garlic (dbl both for 4 ppl) and half the parsley to a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then gently toss to coat.
Pat barramundi dry with paper towels, then season with salt and pepper. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then barramundi, skin-side down. Cook until skin is crispy, 4-5 min. Flip and cook until barramundi is opaque and cooked through, 2-3 min.** (TIP: Try not to move the barramundi, this will ensure it stays in one piece and doesn't stick to the pan.)
Add spinach, tomatoes and olives to the bowl with dressing and shallots. Toss to combine. Divide salad, potatoes and barramundi between plates. Sprinkle remaining parsley over top.
