Texture: Microwave cooking is so quick and great care should be taken not to overcook the fish as it will become “rubbery”.
Starting temperature: Differences in the temperature of the food when placed into the microwave will affect the length of the cooking time required. The colder the food, the longer it will take to cook, so allowances must be made when using food straight from the refrigerator or freezer.
Quantity: The greater the quantity of food placed in the microwave, the greater the length of cooking time required. Similarly, if you use less than the quantities given in the recipes, the cooking times should be adjusted / reduced.
Stirring and turning: Stirring during a heating or cooking process is recommended in some dishes. All foods continue cooking to a degree when removed from the microwave and some dishes will require a standing or resting period to assist with finishing the heating or cooking process.
