Salmon (Microwave-Cooked)

Salmon (Microwave-Cooked) created by BecR2400

I am a true seafood/fish lover and this is my favorite way of having my salmon prepared, even over grilling. It's delicious and also a great "busy night" dinner to prepare on little time. Always comes out tender and flaky the way it should be, not dried out. I've made this many times and it's never failed me. This was passed onto me by my best friend, Steph.

    My first cooking success of the year 2009! I used a marinade of butter, lemon juice, dried dill weed and brown sugar - it was just incredible. However, the salmon filets, totalling 1lb, was well cooked within 6 minutes on high, so I didn't quite get to step 5. My wattage must be higher than the recipe's author's.

    Using Save-A-Lot 2x3 inch frozen filets, it took about a minute each side-- I was using it in a salad so I didn't do the marinade however, hence the lack of stars. Might try it for my last fillet though.

    Made this this week after work. WOW E-Z-E! Used Ken's Honey Teriyaki Marinade for about 15 minutes. Strayed from the recipe a little, oven baked at 400* for 12 mins. total. YUM! The marinade caramelized on salmon for a crusty top. Next time, I may sprinkle with chopped pecans. YUM, again! THX!!
