1) Combine together all the ingredients in a small mixing bowl, except for the fillets, and stir well to thoroughly combine. Set the mixture aside.
2) Arrange the fillets on a microwavable serving platter, in a single layer. With half of the vegetable mixture, top each fillet.
3) Use vented plastic to wrap to cover the fillets and microwave on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) for 3 minutes. Halfway through cooking, rotate the platter ½ turn.
4) Allow the preparation to stand for about 1 minute, till the fish is cooked thoroughly and easily flakes when tested with a fork.

5) Serve the fillets while they are still hot. Before serving, the preparation can be transferred to a fresh, decorative serving platter. Makes a delectable and nutritious main dish.
