Microwave Salmon Fillets

READY IN: 14mins
Recipe by PanNan

This is so easy and quick, but the salmon is perfectly cooked and seasoned. With a bag salad and French bread, a great home cooked dinner is on the table in minutes. A great recipe with fresh salmon from the great West U.S. region.

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.
