Microwave Salmon Recipe

What You’ll Need - Ingredients

2 Servings
Serving Size:168g
* Optional Substitution Note
  • 10oz (wild) salmon filets (I prefer center-cut for their meaty texture)
    • Use center-cut since it is the meatiest and less likely to dry out
  • 2 teaspoons low sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin
    • oyster sauce
    • get low sodium if possible
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
Garnish
  • sesame seeds

Microwave Salmon Recipe: Step-by-Step Instructions

Step 1

First things first, pat those salmon filets dry with a paper towel. Then, pop them into a microwave-safe bowl.

Step 2

Time to get saucy! Rub those filets with some low sodium teriyaki sauce and hoisin sauce, making sure to coat them well in all that yummy marinade.

Step 3

Step 4

Let the salmon hang out in the fridge and marinate for at least 20 minutes. If you’ve got the time, overnight is even better for max flavor.

Step 5

Now comes the cooking part. Microwave the salmon for about 1 – 3 minutes, but keep a close eye on it. Salmon cooks up fast in the microwave, so don’t wander off and risk overcooking it!

Step 6

Once it’s done, take it out and let it rest for a minute. This gives the juices a chance to settle and the flavors to mingle.
