We’ll take our tropical vacation in dinner form tonight, please. Mild, buttery barramundi fillets are seared until the skin is crispy and the fish is flaky, then topped with a silky, spicy pan sauce of Thai chili sauce, coconut milk, and lime juice and a pineapple scallion salsa for bright, sweet contrast. It’s all served with zesty roasted carrots and creamy coconut rice. Now close your eyes and picture yourself enjoying this feast beachside...

• Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. • Trim, peel, and cut carrots on a diagonal into ½-inch-thick pieces. Drain pineapple; roughly chop. Trim and thinly slice scallions. Zest and quarter lime. • Place rice in a fine-mesh strainer and rinse until water runs clear.


• In a small pot, combine ¼ cup coconut milk (thoroughly shake before opening container; you’ll use the rest later), ½ cup water, 1 TBSP butter, ½ tsp sugar, and a big pinch of salt. (For 4 servings, use ½ cup coconut milk, 1 cup water, 2 TBSP butter, and 1 tsp sugar.) • Bring mixture to a boil, then stir in rice; cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until rice is tender, 15-18 minutes. Keep covered off heat until ready to serve.


• While rice cooks, toss carrots on a baking sheet with a drizzle of oil. Season with salt and pepper. • Roast on top rack until golden brown and tender, 20-25 minutes. • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine pineapple, scallions, and a big squeeze of lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.


• Pat barramundi* dry with paper towels and season all over with salt and pepper. • Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large, preferably nonstick, pan over medium-high heat. Add barramundi skin sides down and cook until skin is crispy, 4-5 minutes. Flip and cook until fish is opaque and cooked through, 2-3 minutes more. • Turn off heat; transfer to a plate. Wash out pan.


• Return same pan to medium-high heat. Add chili sauce and remaining coconut milk. Bring to a simmer and cook until reduced by about half, 2-3 minutes. • Remove from heat; stir in a squeeze of lime juice to taste.


• Fluff rice with a fork and season with salt and pepper. • Toss carrots with lime zest. • Divide rice, carrots, and barramundi between plates. Top fish with coconut sauce and pineapple salsa. Serve with any remaining lime wedges on the side.
