2.Place asparagus and beans in pan; top with barramundi, skin-side up. Top barramundi with lemon slices, then drizzle with oil; season.
3.Bake barramundi and vegetables for 8 minutes or until fish is just cooked through and vegetables are tender.
4.Meanwhile, make amazing green sauce. Blend or process all ingredients with ½ cup (125ml) water until smooth; season to taste.

You can use 4 x 250g (8oz) salmon fillets instead of the barramundi, if you like. You will need to reduce the cooking time accordingly.
