2 salmon steaks   340 g
2 tbsp lemonjuice, freshly squeezed   3/4 lemon
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    
1/2 green onions/scallions, green tops only, chopped   7.5 g


  1. Place the steaks in a microwave-safe dish, sprinkle with the lemon juice, then let stand 30 min on the counter.
  2. Cover loosely with plastic and cook at maximum power. Please consider the suggested time as a reference only, since the precise cooking time depends on your oven's power and the size of your steak. Ideally you should cook one or two steaks at a time for 5 min, then continue to cook 1 min at a time, while checking with a fork to see if the fish is cooked through.
  3. Season with salt and pepper to taste, garnish with green onion tops then serve.
