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.

Ingredients
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

Method
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.
