As some of you know, I'm a huge proponent of quick and easy after work dinners. Well, I hit the jackpot with this recipe that I found last week in the Chicago Sun-Times. My poor microwave is mostly used to reheat leftovers and pop my daughter's popcorn BUT, THIS recipe turned my microwave into a star! SIX minutes and our dinner was ready and it was absolutely delicious! OK, a little bit of prep but not much if you use some pre-prepared veggies, as I did. Put a pot of rice on to cook, get the fish ready and when the rice is done, cook the fish, it's SO simple! Did I mention it's healthy too? Ok, it's healthy too! The recipe calls for fish to be 1 1/2 inches thick but I used tilapia which, at it's thickest point, was about 3/4 inches thick and I used the same cook time....the fish was perfect and delicious. The prep time accounts for using the pre-prepared veggies, as I did.
