Crispy Skin Barramundi with Geo

In our quest to continuously share new and exciting recipe's with the community, fellow Melburnian Geo joins us in the kitchen this week as she reached out with her recipe for Crispy Skin Barramundi served in a coconut broth.

The self-proclaimed foodie has an impressive selection of recipes to try on her Instagram page; with everything from beef meatballs to a Biscoff tiramisu.

Currently in the middle of re-doing her own kitchen, Geo choose the 11pc Sweden Utensil Set in Pink as her choice of utensil set.
Her passion for food and cooking jumps right off the screen, and we're so excited to see all the deliciousness she creates in her new workspace.
