Microwave Teriyaki Salmon Recipe
10oz (wild) salmon
- Use center-cut since it is the meatiest and less likely to dry out
- 2 teaspoons low sodium teriyaki sauce
1 tablespoon hoisin
- get low sodium if possible
- oyster sauce
- sesame seeds
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.
Cover and marinate for at least 20 minutes in the fridge or overnight.
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).
Remove from the microwave, ensure it is cooked to your liking, then let it rest for a minute while you prepare the rest of your meal.
Garnish with sesame seeds and enjoy!
