To cook white fish like cod, tilapia, and haddock in the microwave, it typically takes 3-5 minutes for a 4-6 ounce portion. The exact cooking time in the microwave will vary depending on the thickness of the fish. You'll know the fish is properly cooked when it easily flakes with a fork.
Can you cook raw fish in the microwave?
Absolutely! Microwaving raw fish can be a game-changer! Cooking fish in the microwave is not only a speedy method but it's also a healthier approach, preserving the nutrients better than some traditional methods like the oven or grill. Reducing the power level ensures a juicy, not overcooked fish that makes it fool proof and easy to repeat on a daily basis. For safe consumption, it's essential to ensure the fish reaches an internal temperature of at least 145°F (63°C) before eating.
How to microwave frozen white fish?
If cooking from frozen, increase the Power Level by +3 and use the same cooking time. For example, if the recipe says to cook a piece of thawed fish at Power Level 3, you can cook a piece of frozen fish at Power Level 6 for the same amount of time.
How to make fish not smell in the microwave?
Microwaving fish without any smell is a (fresh) breeze with Anyday. The silicone-lined lid of Anyday dishes effectively traps moisture, flavors, and most importantly, odors, ensuring your microwave stays fresh and scent-free.
