Very quick salmon with teriyaki, lime and ginger

Obviously I eat quite alot of salmon as the recipes are piling up for salmon dishes. I couldn't resist posting this one even though it's using teriyaki sauce again. I've just used up two salmon fillets in a meal that took 5 minutes in the microwave, and it was delicious. I wanted a light lunch, so I omitted rice or noodles and just served it with some green beans and slices of thinly peeled cucumber. The lime adds a lovely tartness to the sauce. Healthy, low in calories and really quick. Again there is no need to be too specific about the quantities you use.

Serves 2
2 salmon fillets
approx 2 tbsp of teriyaki sauce
a thumb sized piece of ginger peeled and chopped into small bits
juice of 1 lime
black pepper

Put the salmon fillets into a microwavable bowl. Pour on the desired amount of teriyaki, add the juice of the lime and the ginger and give the whole thing a little stir to coat the salmon. Cover the bowl with clingfilm and cook on full power in the microwave for approx 5 mins or until the salmon is cooked through. Serve with rice, noodles or greens, pouring the sauce on top of the salmon and grind on some black pepper.


  1. Of course, first you have to catch the very quick salmon... :)

  2. Ha, your jet lag has not affected your wit. But now you've pointed it out it looks a bit daft.x
