Since salmon has been known to explode when it is put in the microwave, it will be extremely important for you to take the time to find out how to properly heat it up this way. You will first need to select a salmon filet to put in the microwave. Keep in mind that frozen fish filets can be easy to cook, but they can also have a strange somewhat fishy taste to them. Next you will need to marinade the salmon with Italian dressing or something else that you like the taste of. Take the fish out of the marinade and put it into a microwave-safe glass container with the skin facing up.
Make sure to microwave your salmon in accordance with the size. The amount of time you will need to keep your fish in the microwave will just depend on how big it is. Frozen fish filets can range from three to six oz. and fresh filets can be as large as 15 oz. For the smaller fillets anywhere from 3-4 minutes should do. Those who enjoy their fish rare or medium rare will want to cut down on the cooking time by at least a minute, closely monitoring it during the cooking process.
