Step 1
Turn on the oven to 425 F.
Step 2
Heat about 2 tbsp of olive oil on a pan, add the leeks and season with salt. Cook the leeks until they start turning transparent and soft.
Step 3
Add the white wine and let it evaporate for 2 minutes. Add the cream and the tomato paste. Cook some more stirring often, until the sauce is reduced almost by half.
Step 4
Spray a baking dish with olive oil and place the barramundi fillet on top. Season with salt and pour the cream sauce over it. Top with the tomatoes and chopped dill.
Step 5
Bake for 16-20min
Step 6
Optional: A great garnish is fried leeks. Cut some of the leftover leek in thin slices, coat with olive oil, season with salt and air fry at 400F for 5 minutes.
