RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

MAIN COURSE

FISH AND VEGETABLES, American

Fish cooks well in a microwave oven. Flounder may be substituted for the cod in the following recipe.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 cup julienne carrots
  • 1 medium potato, thinly sliced
  • 12 ounces cod or flounder fillets, about ½ inch thick, cut into four serving-size pieces
  • 1 cup cheese crackers or cheese
  • croutons, crushed
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh parsley
  • 1/8 teaspoon each garlic powder and pepper
Preparation Instructions

In 9-inch square baking dish, combine broccoli, carrots and potato. Cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 5½ to 6½ minutes, or until vegetables are tender-crisp, stirring once. Arrange fish pieces over vegetables. Press cracker or crouton crumbs onto fish. Set aside.

In 1-cup measure, combine remaining ingredients. Microwave on high for 45 seconds to 1½ minutes, or until butter melts and mixture begins to boil, stirring after half the cooking time. Drizzle butter mixture over fish and vegetables. Cover with wax paper. Microwave at 70 percent (medium high) for 7½ to 11 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with fork, rotating dish after half the time.
