We’re making a pair of simple sides to accompany crispy-skinned barramundi in this recipe. Sautéed corn and red onion offer bursts of tangy sweetness, while garlic mashed potatoes—made by boiling and then mashing whole garlic cloves with Yukon Gold potatoes—add comforting heartiness. It all comes together with the classic flavors of creamy tartar sauce and a garnish of herbaceous fresh dill.
