How To Make bonnie's fast fish!

    This picture is of a TV dinner by Healthy Choice. A lot of people buy these dinners, because they are fast and easy to fix a meal for lunch or dinner. What we need to make this recipe is the container and its insert that is inside this box. I have a stack of these bowls and inserts saved, because they make great kitchen tools. They have a ton of uses! They are dishwasher safe, too. The inserts can be used as small colanders for fruit and vegetables and small amounts of lettuce for a salad. The bowls make great containers to dredge meat in, or bowls to hold ingredients to prepare a recipe. Or put the colander in the bowl to let ingredients drain. My dog's food dish uses one for a liner. So don't throw them away when you buy the meal. :)

    Let's Begin~ We are now going to pour the Vermouth or wine and the butter into the bottom of the bowl and place the insert, the one with the holes, inside the bowl. We use only thin filets of frozen fish in this recipe. This allows the fish to cook without getting mushy. I'm not saying fresh fish can't be used. I just haven't tested it. Place the frozen fish on a cutting board and cut it to fit the bowl. I use a mallet and a couple of whacks works for me! Be sure the fish is in one layer.

    For this recipe, I used Flounder. It was a good choice.

    Season the fish with garlic powder, garlic salt, and lemon pepper, all to your taste. Add the chopped parsley. I also added some slivers of sun ripened dried tomatoes, and if you don't care for those or any ingredient, feel free to substitute whatever you prefer. Squeeze the lemon juice over all.

    Cover the dish tightly with Saran Wrap. Cut a piece long enough to fit around the dish and under the bottom, too. Rub your fingers around the rim of the bowl, and the underside of the bowl, making sure it sticks firmly.

    Place the wrapped bowl in the microwave and Cook 4 1/2 minutes. Put the bowl on a salad plate to carry it from the microwave to the counter. It prevents dumping it on the floor, which I did one day. The saran wrap will puff up into a big bubble, which will deflate as soon as the microwave stops.

    This dish is hot. The dish has the appearance of being vacuum sealed. So, I use a knife to release the pressure before opening it. You may combine the sauce or liquid in the bottom of the bowl with the fish or not. Your choice. I really like this combination, so it works for me.
  • This is a frozen Flounder filet, seasoned and cooked in the microwave.
    This was my lunch, today! Lunch was done in a flash. Enjoy the Fish!
