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.

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!
