These fillets are delicious to eat and easy-to-make using your microwave.

Parmesan Fish Fillets

2 medium tomatoes, sliced

2 (6-ounce) fish fillets such as tilapia, snapper, mahi mahi or sole

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon minced garlic

Salt and freshly ground pepper

1/4 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese shavings

1/2 cup basil, torn into bite-size pieces

Put tomato slices in a microwaveable dish in one layer. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Microwave on high for 2 minutes.

Place fish fillets over the tomatoes. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with minced garlic and salt and pepper. Cover loosely with plastic wrap. Microwave on high 5 minutes or until center of fillet is opaque. (Test after 3 minutes as microwave ovens have different powers.)
