Microwave Torsk With Lemon Butter

My Scandinavian mother always referred to cod fish as torsk and my brother and I loved it when she made her baked torsk. I like this recipe because it's easy and I can make it in the summertime without having to turn on the oven. Serve with clarified butter for dipping if you're a real butter junkie.


  1. Arrange fillets in a glass baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
  2. Dot with butter.
  3. Sprinkle with lemon juice, salt and paprika.
  4. Cover dish with plastic wrap.
  5. Microwave 6 to 7 minutes or until fish flakes easily.
