flounder or other flatfish

mate of mind showed me how, a day or two ago:

He laid the fish on a micro-safe dish, dark side up, still wet and slimy (as in just off the boat, but I guess supermarket flatties could be wet down first) and took a sheet of handytowel and sort of laid it over fish and fins, patted it down so the handytowell was stuck and bunged it in the micro for 3 minutes for my smallish one, 4 minutes for his bigger one.

He let them sit a wee while after timeup, then gently removed the handytowel complete with fins, head and skin.

With salt to taste and a knob of butter melted over, and a squeeze of lemon, ... Heaven!

Did he have to loosen the head in any way first Nitz? Or does it just come off without too much problem.

I might have to try this. I've always been loath to cook fish in the m/w, too scared of overcooking, but worth a try.

I often cook flounder in the microwave it is so easy and saves a heap of washing up.

Ive always avoided using the microwave for actually cooking something - theyve all been disasters  Angry

Did/do you coat your flounder with flour and salt/pepper b4 cooking?

And - what about the fish smell in the microwave - any??

Classic idea!

Rule of thumb for perfect microwave fish whether whole or filleted.   Cook 1 minute for each 100 grams of fish.    Best to pierce eyes with toothpick or remove because they will explode (sealed membrane)

Yes kidneys too.
What a mess blew the door open.........nearly as bad as a unpierced can of beans or letting the water boil away on eggs probably worst as stunk up the house for days and the egg set like concrete

But rather, to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming...

WOW, What a Ride!"

Please note: IMHO and e&oe apply to all my posts.

Glad I didn't have to clean out your oven. Grin Grin
When I first got my MW oven I was sure a couple of seconds wouldn't be enough to warm a bread roll and gave it about a minute.  I could have played golf with it. Grin

my late mum won a microwave for buying a bag of spuds at the supermarket ...

she had it delivered unpacked it and sat it a top the fridge ...

her attempt at making a sultana cake was her on and only time she used it

the cake was a rock that even the birds in teh garden where it ebded up couldnt crack into

the microwave became a store cupboard until she died and took it ....

going well still over 10 years since she won it ...
