Microwave Poached Fish - Recipe

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.

Microwave Poached Fish Recipe
  • 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.
