  • Rub the top of each steak with 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce and 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice, then sprinkle or rub with 1/8 teaspoon spice blend.
  • Sprinkle peppers over fish in center of the dish.
  • Cover dish tightly with plastic wrap and microwave on high (MAX power) until flesh is nearly opaque, about 5 1/2 to 6 minutes.

If cooking 4 steaks, arrange in a circle with belly flaps toward the center of the dish. Cook one steak 3 1/2 to 4 minutes, 2 steaks 5 1/2 to 6 minutes, 4 steaks about 7 minutes.
If desired, use halibut, tuna, salmon, etc., instead of swordfish.
