Soy ginger fish

What can you do in a few minutes? Perhaps prepare this spectacular treat that

and easily available ingredients fool you; this beauty is full of flavour.

Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Do you love salmon? The good news is that this recipe also works great with salmon. Also, while you are preparing the dish, don’t add salt as the soy sauce is already salty (however, it is a different tale if you like your food extra salty).
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed. For more recipes, visit
