Microwave Poached Fish Recipe

Provided By
Quick and easy--and minimizes fish odor. This recipe can be expanded as needed; figure on about 5 minutes cooking time per pound and choose a dish that will hold the fillets in a single layer. Using a jug or box wine for poaching will be fine.

Update Servings
  • 2 fillets, about 6 ounces each
  • dry white wine to cover fish, about 1 cup
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • freshly ground pepper
  • lemon slices (optional)
Container: microwavable dish with cover
5 mins
5 mins
10 mins
  • Put fillets in microwavable dish sized to hold fish snugly in a single layer. Add white wine just to cover fish. Chop parsley and scatter over fish. Grind a little pepper onto fish.
  • Cover and microwave on high for 4 minutes.  Check for doneness--fish will be opaque and will flake easily with a fork when done. Cook for another minute, if necessary.
  • Remove from cooking liquid and serve hot, with lemon if desired.  Salt to taste at table.
