  • 1 tablespoon hoisin
    • oyster sauce
    • get low sodium if possible
  • sesame seeds


Step 1

Pat salmon filets dry with a paper towel and then place in a microwave safe bowl.  Rub the sauces all over the top and side of the salmon.

Step 2

Loosely cover with microwave-safe plastic wrap or microwave cover.  Cook for 1 – 3 minutes, monitoring to ensure it does not overcook and begin to explode (yes, salmon is very lean and will begin to pop if cooked too long).

About Kevin - author


Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
