I have not tried this as I dont like fish but am posting it for the Zaar World Tour to Asia. This is a very easy recipe.


  1. Place fish fillets in a 8x8-inch glass baking dish.
  2. In a small bowl, combine pineapple, soy sauce and green onion.
  3. Pour over fish.
  4. Cover fish with saran wrap; venting on one corner of the dish.
  5. Microwave on High 6 to 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

I had two pounds of gorgeous tilapia fillets and one big can of crushed pineapple. I used chopped red onion - lots of it - and regular soy sauce - plus some minced garlic. Put it all in a big Corning dish, covered it as instructed, and was sure the microwave would screw it up. (I've never done fish in the microwave before, but I didn't want these fillets to go bad and did NOT want to freeze them.) Imagine my surprise when they came out - 12 minutes later, with one rotation halfway through - as if they'd been steamed ever so carefully. It was amazing, everyone loved them, four of us put away the whole 2 pounds, and my only regret is that there are no leftovers for fish tacos! Next time, I might try other fruit, and lots more onions, maybe in rings, because they almost became a lovely crunchy vegetable, but this is a wonderful, easy, brilliant recipe!

I made this for my family with the crushed pineapple, soy sauce and just a bit of viadila onion. My kids (9, 5 and 3) LOVED the fish. It was flaky and tender and cooked perfectly this way. Hubby liked it ok, but sweeter foods are nt his favorite, but even he agreed it was one to make again. The kids ate every bite they were served and enthusiastically said they would want me to make it again. Now I have another great recipe for a quick evening dinner. Unbelievable how quickly dinner came together tonight!

I loved this recipe because it was so easy and quick to prepare. But the taste was a little "fishy" to me, and I eat fish at least twice a week. Next time I will add some spices and see if that helps. Thanks for the quick and easy recipe for tilapia.
