Cantonese Fish in the Microwave!

We are not big fish eaters in this house. 
Hubby likes to catch them, but not so much eating them.
He is happier with shellfish but will "humor" me from time to time.

A few years ago we went on a small charter boat when we were in Florida and I caught the only "keepers", with 3 really good size Spanish Mackerel.  
He had caught a shark that was trailing us and probably getting everyone else's bait and fish.  He loved the challenge.
But he wasn't too keen on eating my Mackerel winnings, which we had prepared at one of the local restaurants.  He did have a little bit.  
One of the things I like about this recipe is that it highlights the versatility of the Tupperware SmartSteamer.  
Who knew you could make really good fish in the MICROWAVE!!

Yield: 2
Serving Size: 1 fillet

For the fish

  • 2 green onions, sliced thin
  • 1 tbsp. minced fresh ginger
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 fresh snapper fillets, skin removed*
For the sauce
  • 2 tbsp. minced shallot
  • 1 tsp. minced fresh ginger
  • ½ tsp. minced fresh garlic
  • ¾ cup orange juice
  • 3 tbsp. maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp. kosher salt
  • ½ tsp. white vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch

  1. In a small bowl, stir together green onion, ginger, salt and pepper.
  2. In the water tray of the Tupperware® SmartSteamer, add water to the max fill line. 
  3. Place steamer base inside water tray; place colander on top of steamer base.
  4. Place two fish fillets in colander. 
  5. Divide green onion mixture evenly between the two fillets, spread across top of each fillet. 
  6. Cover and microwave on high power 9 minutes. 
  7. Remove from microwave, remove cover and transfer fish to a serving dish.
  8. Make the sauce. In the 2-cup Micro Pitcher, stir together shallot, ginger, garlic, orange juice, maple syrup, salt, vinegar, and cornstarch. 
  9. Microwave on high power 1 minute 30 seconds. 
  10. Remove from microwave, stir sauce and pour over fish. 
  11. Serve warm.
