I always cook my salmon this way, but I put them in ziplock bags and poke holes thoughout. I can usually cook about 3 in one bag for about the same amount of time, depending on the thickness. Awesome way to cook salmon.

A heart healthy dinner in only minutes. This was reduced to 2 servings and Smart Balance margarine used. The salmon was perfect in 3 minutes. Served with Fresh Spinach and Couscous Salad/Feta Cheese. Made for Diabetic Forum *Heart Healthy Tag*

Fast and wonderful way to "bake" salmon. Since I didn't have lemon pepper, I used 1/2 small lemon about 1/4 tsp black pepper, and added 1 clove pressed garlic and about 1tsp olive oil. I let the 3/4 lb. filet sit for about 30minutes in this "marinade", then microwaved it (covered as suggested) for about 3 minutes. I made sure the narrow/thinner filet portion was centered and the thicker wider portion of the filet was on the outer diameter of the "circular" rotating microwave tray so that they would be done at the same time. It was 110 degrees today where I live, so it was wonderul finding this salmon microwave recipe to avoid using the oven. Thank you for a simple delicious recipe.

These were super easy and they tasted good. The microwave didn't dry them out which I was worried about. Will definitely try again. Made for ZWT4
