Sea Bass, Halibut or Salmon

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at This is a wonderful way to cook fish for 1-2 people, using your microwave. I like to put a few kale or broccoli rabe leaves on the plate and then place the fish on top of it. Season as desired with herbs and paprika, cover with another kale leaf or waxed paper. Calculate about 4-5 minutes per pound of fish, no need to turn the fish over during cooking. The fish will be poached or steamed, not crispy. Use the skillet method for crispy browned fish.

1-2 fresh fish steaks or fillets
1 tablespoon horseradish mustard
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
1-2 sprigs parsley, snipped
1/4 teaspoon Sweet Hungarian Paprika
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon fresh snipped dill, or dried dill
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground peppercorns
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

Wash and with a paper towel pat each steak dry. Spread with just a little of the horseradish mustard. In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients and then pat onto both sides of each steak. Arrange steaks on a microwave safe dinner plate or platter. Snip on a little more parsley. Cover loosely with waxed paper. Microwave on high, calculating 2-3 minutes per steak. (Average about 5 minutes per pound of fish). Do not overcook, fish should flake easily when you twist the tines of a fork in the flesh.

Or, heat a heavy bottomed saute or grill pan. Add olive oil and fish. Gently cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until fish is done.
