This recipe takes just a few minutes to prepare and cook! Salmon cooks so fast in the microwave that it doesn't have time to dry out – it doesn't get any easier than this and it's great for a weeknight entree.

How to Make Quick Asian Salmon

Mix together some soy sauce, lime juice, fish sauce, and sesame oil in a bowl. Place two salmon fillets in a microwave-proof dish and cover the fish with the sauce. Sprinkle over some red pepper flakes if you like. Microwave on full power for one minute, then at 50% power in one-minute bursts until the fish is cooked to your liking.

Sprinkle with chopped green onions then serve. It's so quick!!!

No, I wouldn't recommend reheating it in the microwave. But it would work wonderfully in a salad when cold!
