Fish in the microwave

In an effort to eat less beef, I started cooking more fish the last few years.  The problem is that I’m not particularly fond of cooking fish.  And I surely don’t want to clean a fish or even see it in any form that actually looks like a fish. lol

My solution was to buy frozen fish and cook it right from frozen in the microwave.  Tilapia is by far my favorite.  But we also enjoy salmon.

I put the frozen tilapia in a glass baking dish.  Then I cover with Italian dressing and sprinkle parm cheese on top.  Throw in the microwave at full power for 6 to 10 minutes.

I do the salmon much the same way.  I put it in a glass baking dish.  Drizzle lemon juice over it and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Cook in the microwave at full power for 6 to 10 minutes.

For the Salmon I make a simple sauce from mayo, parsley and lemon juice to go with.

We had the tilapia today for Sunday dinner.  But we devoured it so fast that I forgot to take a pic.  Next time.  My kids (ages 5 and 8) had three helpings each of the tilapia.  So, I’d say it’s pretty kid friendly.
