The original recipe for this entree came from my grandmother, who baked it in the oven. Today, the fish, which has a pleasant lemon-and-herb flavor, cooks quickly in the microwave. My family has always raved about it.—Gloria A. Warczak, Cedarburg, Wisconsin

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds cod or haddock fillets
  • 1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • Pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Place the fillets in an ungreased 11x7-in. microwave-safe dish. Cover and cook on high for 6 minutes; drain. Add wine or broth, lemon juice, zest, chives, parsley, tarragon and pepper.
  2. Cover and cook 4-5 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
