Delicious Microwave Salmon

There is no reason that you have to deny yourself tasty and nutritious meals just because you are on your own.  This recipe is perfect for us bachelors and it takes just five minutes to prepare in the microwave!

Purchase a salmon filet. You will want to rinse the salmon and pat it dry. Season the fish with salt and pepper. Place the salmon in a microwave-safe dish and tightly cover it with plastic wrap. Microwave the salmon for 3.5 minutes. Pierce the fish with a fork in the center to check if the salmon is cooked through. If there is no bright flesh in the center, the salmon is ready to eat. If there is uncooked fish left, cook for an additional 30-45 seconds before checking again.

Instead of seasoning it with just salt and pepper, spread a thin layer of either mayonnaise or a spicy sriracha blend. Add a few lemon slices and a sprinkling of fresh parsley, too. It helps keep the salmon very moist, not to mention give it a burst of bright flavor.

Sriracha mayonnaise is easy to make and can be used any time a recipe calls for regular mayonnaise. It adds a nice heat to savory meals and also works as a spicy dip. Sriracha can be found in Asian grocery stores or in the Asian section of your local grocery store.
