Reheating fish at work... faux pas?

It's Friday
It's Lent
I don't eat meat on Fridays during Lent

I had leftover breadded haddock and pierogies from last night's dinner, it's a mild fish

one thin filet and three pierogies

zapped it (no toaster oven) for 1 minute 30 seconds, stepped away during that time to grab mail, etc...
I was completely called out for heating fish up in the microwave at work.

Ok, so they made a joke of it, but I could tell that there was some resentment in that laughter.

so I eat stinky foods, I remember getting "the look" while eating Korean in the lunch room too

Is reheating fish at work still considered a faux pas???
