DIRECTIONS

  • Place salmon skin side down (if using fillets) in shallow microwave-safe dish, glass or plastic.
  • Combine the rest of the ingredients, except scallions, and pour over fish.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and marinate at room temperature for 30 to 60 minutes.
  • The longer it marinates, the more pronounced the flavor.
  • Turn fish once or twice while marinating, leaving it skin side up on the last turn (if using fillets).
  • Making sure the plastic wrap seal is tight, microwave on high for 7 minutes.
  • Let it stand in the microwave for an additional 3 minutes, covered, while you plate the spinach or other veggies.
  • Check one fillet to ensure it is cooked to your liking (All microwaves cook a little differently; I rather like medium rare salmon if it turns out that way, but others may not-- if too rare, just pop it back in the microwave, sealed, and zap it for a minute or so).
  • Plate the salmon and sprinkle with the scallions.
