Place the fish on a microwave-safe roasting rack in a
microwave-safe dish. Use a tight cover to steam the fish.
A lighter cover of wax paper or paper towel will decrease
steaming. Cook the fish until it flakes easily with a fork. Do
not over cook fish. Check it after the minimum cooking

You can use your microwave oven to cook eggs. Cook
them until they are just set as they become tough if they
are overcooked.
Never cook eggs in their shells and never warm
up hard-boiled eggs in their shells. Eggs cooked
or warmed up in their shells can explode. Always
pierce whole eggs to keep them from bursting.


Vegetables should be washed prior to cooking. Usually,
no extra water is needed. When cooking dense
vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and green beans,
add about ¼ cup water.
Small vegetables (sliced carrots, peas, lima beans, etc.)
will cook faster than larger ones.
Whole vegetables, such as potatoes, acorn squash or
corn on the cob, should be arranged in a circle on the
turntable before cooking. They will cook more evenly if
turned over halfway through the cooking process.
Always place vegetables such as asparagus and broccoli
with the stems pointing towards the edge of the dish and

Arrange the steaks on
a roasting rack with the
meaty portions towards
the outside of the rack.
Cover with wax paper.
Turn them over halfway
through the cooking
process. Cook until the
fish flakes easily with a
fork. Let stand for 3-5
Arrange the fillets in a
baking dish, tucking any
thin pieces under. Cover
with wax paper. If the
fillets are thicker than ½
in., turn them over halfway
through the cooking
process. Cook until the
fish flakes easily with a
fork. Let stand for 2-3
Arrange the shrimp in
a baking dish without
overlapping or layering
them. Cover with wax
paper. Cook until firm
and opaque, stirring 2 or
3 times. Let stand for 5
the tips toward the center.
When cooking cut vegetables, always cover the dish with
a lid or vented microwavable plastic wrap.
Whole, unpeeled vegetables such as potatoes, squash,
eggplant, etc., should have their skins pierced in several
spots before cooking to prevent them from bursting.
For a more even cooking result, stir or rearrange whole
vegetables halfway through the cook time.
Generally, the denser the food, the longer the standing
time. (The standing time refers to the time necessary for
dense, large foods and vegetables to finish cooking after
they come out of the oven.) A baked potato can stand on
the counter for five minutes before cooking is completed,
while a dish of peas can be served immediately.
