Wine Poached Salmon Done in the Microwave

This recipe came from the Betty Crocker Cooking for Two cookbook. It is actually made in the microwave and ended up tasting great. I was a little nervous as I have never cooked fish in the nuker before, but it turned out really well and dinner was ready in no time!

You will need some salmon, or any fish filet would probably work. White wine, water, lemon, salt and pepper, thyme and tarragon. I also got out some asparagus that I steamed in a pan of water on the stove and flavored with a bit of olive oil and some lemon.

Ok this is too easy. Put it in a dish, sprinkle with the wine, water, salt, pepper and herbs. Slice the lemon and place the slices on the fish. Cover with wax paper and microwave for 3-5 minutes. You are DONE!

Plate it up with a side and you have dinner in 10 minutes. How easy is that?? I will be trying this with other fish as well.


  1. Are you kidding me? Microwaved fish! It looks wonderful - I will definently give it a try - this would cut down on fishy pan fry smell that consumes my house...

  2. You're just darn lucky you have a lot of microwave-safe lovely Pyrex brand dishware to cook this in. ;)

  3. ohh, wine poached salmon is a very delicious recipe, and now we can cooking it in microwave. this is amazing
