    I don't think that is a duplicate. However, I do think it's too broad -- ushna, could you please edit to include details about what sort of fish, what preparation (sauce spices etc) you have in mind, and so on? – Erica Nov 30 '18 at 21:25

I frequently cook fish in the microwave, as I'm the only one who eats it in my house. Thaw filet in cold water and place on microwave safe dish. I turn fish over halfway through cooking. The kind of fish and the thickness will determine time. I recommend using partial power or your fish will be rubbery. I have a 1200 watt microwave and the following is just a guideline. From completely thawed:

Salmon filet @2" thick - about 2 minutes each side at 70% White fish or Tilapia filet (these are very thin @ 1/4") 1 minute on each side at 80%.

Please be aware that this is just from my personal experience.
