  • Hi Kate, Depending on the

    Hi Kate,

    Depending on the weight and thickness of the fillets you should be okay using the same cooking times for fillets with a similar weight. I would certainly include Asian vegetables around the sides of the fish fillets to try and control the cooking times but be sure to keep a close eye on both componets throughout the cooking process to make sure you don't overcook.

    Drizzle a mixture of oyster and soy sauce over the veggies while cooking for an added flavour dimension too.

    Let us know how you go Kate - always good to have Thermo-mixers willing to experiement for the benefit of others tmrc_emoticons.;)

  • Looks great!  Can I use fish

    Looks great!  Can I use fish fillets instead?  If so, what would you recommend cooking time be reduced to?  Or how about if I packed veggies around it?  Do you think same cooking time would then be applicable?
