Dorada and yellow cheese (microwaved)

by viviana on February 21, 2012 in Mains

Hehe! By now you all know that dorada is my favorite fish. I simply love the taste, smell, texture and looks (!) of this fish. I just can’t get enough of it! I was really busy today, so I decided to speed up the process of cooking the fish. Oh, or was it because I was cooking chicken in the oven for my daughter at the same time? A little bit of both, as my Granny taught me something very important: never cook other food when fish is around :).

Ingredients: 2 dorada fish, 6 pieces of yellow cheese (cubes), olive oil, water, basil, salt, lemon

Yield: 2 servings.

Time: 50 min.


I wash and eviscerate the fish. I wash it with lemon juice and then I salt it (outside and inside). I put it in a heat resistant pot that fits in my microwave oven. I pour 50 ml of water. I cook it in the microwave for 15 min.

I take it out and turn it on the other side (carefully).

I cook it another 15 min. I take it out, sprinkle basil and place the pieces of cheese on top of the fish.

I cook it for 10 more minutes. I love this fish and I think that cooking it in the microwave does not ruin its wonderful taste at all. Nothing fishy here, I’m telling you ;)!
