How to Cook Fish in the Microwave
Fish benefits from quick, moist cooking such as in the microwave. These tips ensure success.
—Arrange pieces in a single layer in dish, largest toward the outside.
—For fillets, tuck thin ends under or roll up to avoid overcooked, dry edges.
—Butterfly steaks, such as tuna or swordfish, thicker than 1 inch.
—Cover with plastic wrap and vent at one corner.
—General rule is 6 to 9 minutes of cooking time per inch of thickness. Rotate halfway through cooking time if microwave does not have carousel. Let cooked fish stand 3 to 5 minutes to complete cooking.

Quick Fish Dinners
—Chipotle-Maple Salmon: Combine 2 tablespoons maple syrup, 1 tablespoon each lemon juice and vegetable oil and 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder. Brush mixture on 4 salmon fillets (about 4 ounces each) and roast at 450 degrees F. for 15 minutes. Brush with remaining mixture and broil for 2 minutes.
—Curried Shrimp: In 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, sauté 1 cup each chopped onion and peeled apple and 1/2 cup chopped celery for 7 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon curry powder and cook 1 minute. Whisk 2 tablespoons flour into 2 cups milk and add to skillet; cook 1 minute. Stir in 1 pound medium cleaned shrimp and simmer 4 minutes, turning once. Serve over rice.
—Southeast Asia-Style Scallops: Mix together 1/4 cup each unseasoned bread crumbs and chopped peanuts, 1 tablespoon chopped ginger and 1/4 teaspoon each red pepper flakes and garlic powder. Stir in 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Place 1 1/2 pounds scallops in a greased glass pie plate. Coat scallops with nonstick cooking spray and top with bread crumb mixture. Spritz scallops with more spray and bake at 450 degrees F. for 15 minutes.
How to Properly Freeze Seafood
When freezing fish, tightly wrap in plastic wrap and then foil to avoid freezer burn. Freeze at 0 degrees F. for up to 3 months for fatty fish such as salmon and 6 months for leaner picks such as flounder. Defrost frozen seafood in the refrigerator overnight or under cold running water, never in the microwave. Prepare immediately after thawing.
