    Hey Jude's Note:

    As some of you know, I'm a huge proponent of quick and easy after work dinners. Well, I hit the jackpot with this recipe that I found last week in the Chicago Sun-Times. My poor microwave is mostly used to reheat leftovers and pop my daughter's popcorn BUT, THIS recipe turned my microwave into a star! SIX minutes and our dinner was ready and it was absolutely delicious! OK, a little bit of prep but not much if you use some pre-prepared veggies, as I did. Put a pot of rice on to cook, get the fish ready and when the rice is done, cook the fish, it's SO simple! Did I mention it's healthy too? Ok, it's healthy too! The recipe calls for fish to be 1 1/2 inches thick but I used tilapia which, at it's thickest point, was about 3/4 inches thick and I used the same cook time....the fish was perfect and delicious. The prep time accounts for using the pre-prepared veggies, as I did.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut the fish into 1-inch wide strips and place in a 2-qt. microwave-safe dish. Scatter the sugar snap peas, mushrooms, ginger, carrots and scallions evenly over the fish. It's going to look really pretty so take a moment to admire it.
    2. 2
      Combine the hoisin sauce, soy sauce and vinegar in a small bowl and then slowly drizzle over the fish and vegetables. Cover the dish with plastic wrap, folding back one corner to allow the steam to escape.
    3. 3
      Place the dish in the microwave and cook on high power until the fish is cooked through and the vegetables are crisp tender, 6 minutes. Stop every 2 minutes to gently stir and reposition the fish so that the outside pieces are moved to the inside. ***I didn't really believe that the fish and veggies would be cooked in 6 minutes but they WERE and they were perfect. I set the MWave for 2 minutes and just gently rearranged the fish each time (3 times).
    4. 4
      Serve the fish and veggies with the cooked rice.
