This is delicious - we didn't add the vinegar (which is what, I suspect, the people who reviewed this poorly, didn't like). This is an easy way to prepare fish - we will make often!

I had no idea you could microwave fish. This is a 5-star recipe for what it is--quick microwave cooking. It came out perfectly. I went light on the apple cider vinegar because of some negativ...
