Recipe: Gourmet Microwave Salmon

When you work as much as I do and aren’t home long enough to make a meal the first thing that you end up eating is junk food or take a ways.

To be honest it gets to a point where you just can’t take it anymore.


This week I decided to see if I could use the limited resources available at the studio to create a gourmet meal and it was a great success.


Here is what you are going to need:

  • A fillet of salmon

  • 2-3 Slices of Lemon

  • Seasoning of your choice (I used a honey mustard sauce)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Microwave dish with lid or microwave safe cling wrap



  • Place your salmon in your microwave dish skin down.

  • Season with salt and pepper as well as your desired seasoning.

  • Place the lemon slices on to of your fillet.

  • Microwave your salmon for 3min.

  • Check if the fillet is done to your liking if not cook for another 30-40sec


Just like that you are done.


Serve with a starch of your choice. I always like a bit of mash with my salmon but that might be too rich for some. Try couscous or rice which can also be made in the microwave.
