HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO STEAM FISH IN THE MICROWAVE?
The amount of time it takes to steam fish depends on its size. For a one-inch thick filet, steaming may take about 4-5 minutes, but can take longer with a thicker fish.
Cook times may vary depending on your microwave’s power level. When it comes to steaming fish, set your power level to high (90%). Check your microwave’s user manual for more specific instructions on how to set your power level. For a KitchenAid® microwave, press COOK TIME and enter your desired cook time. Afterward, press POWER LEVELS and enter your desired power level.
Select KitchenAid® microwaves have a Sensor Steam setting to help you steam your food. To use this feature on your KitchenAid® microwave, first refer to your owner's manual. Using your provided steamer vessel, a sensor will detect when liquid begins to boil, then begin the Steam or Simmer countdown. Do not remove the lid while the steamer is in the microwave oven, as the steam could disrupt the sensor readings.
