How to make it

  • Grease a baking dish with butter
  • Place the salmon skin-side down in it
  • Sprinkle with the garlic powder, ginger, and freshly ground pepper.
  • Sprinkle some soy sauce over the fish and then pour orange juice in, about 1/2 inch deep.
  • Dot the top of the fish with butter.
  • Cover and microwave on high if making two or three servings. For two servings I nuke this 3 1/2 minutes. If preparing for numerous people I'd cook on a lower power and adjust the time so the fish doesn't explode.

    I've made salmon in the conventional oven - 400 degrees, 20 minutes. Just keep an eye on it to stay moist which this short timing in he microwave aces.

    this sounds amazing except for one slight problem..I don't on a microwave. Do you think I can make this in the oven? I love the sound of the orange juice!!

    Kukla - I am absolutely delighted you found this method worked well for you and flattered you added it to you menu. That is lovely.
    Thanks so much for sweet words.

    Ya know....I wasn't too sure about microwaving salmon either -- BUT!! your chef-friend was very correct!
    I don't eat fish nor seafood, but my husband does. Because I 'cook to taste', more than often I end up over-cooking salmon; this most definately IS a fool-proof method.
    Thank you, Borinda, for posting this. (BTW, hope you don't mind, but I've included it in my Japanese Bento menu... :)

    I am sorry this quick approach does not suit your more elite sensibilities. A chef friend had told me to figure 6 1/2 minutes per pound for fish in the microwave specifically because when either covered or crumbed the moisture is held in and makes a fast meal that's sure-fire. I ran with his advice.

    Sounded very good until I got to cooking instructions. If you like microwaved food, at least provide an oven or stove top alternative. As for me, I would never waste a good salmon steak on the microwave!
