Barramundi, delicious and flaky, goes by another name in some circles: "passion fish." That romantic and emotional name is apropos here, for we find the delicate fish paired with the smooth white wine-butter sauce passionately delicious. And maybe the Swiss aren't known for their romance, but the chard that bears their name is mighty tasty with potatoes and parsnips. Serve this meal to your special someone, and see if the passion fish can live up to its name. (It can.)
