Fish Filet

Today is Ash Wednesday. My fellow Catholics are meatless today, and every Friday until Easter. This here is a quick and easy fish recipe to make their lives easier. If you like fish, it can make your life easier too, because it is really quick, and tastes just like you ordered it from the restaurant!

Fresh Fish (perch, whitefish, tilapia, orange roughy)
fresh lemom

Place fish filets in dish. Put a pat of butter on each fish. Squeeze lemon over the fish. Cover with wax paper. Place in microwave. Microwave on HIGH for five minutes. Remove fish. If it flakes easily, you are done. If not, cover again and try for another couple of minutes. Fish is done when it flakes easily. Orange roughy takes less time than tilapia.
Serve with salad.

Too easy? Sorry. I am not good with fish, so my cousin gave me this recipe. Now, I appear to be good with fish, because this is really good!


  1. Wow - super easy. That would be great with my secret Teriyaki sauce...!

  2. I would love it if you would share your secret Teriyaki sauce recipe!

  3. I'm not good with fish either (catching, cooking or eating it) but Big Al loves it. So this one I will try for him.
