Scallion Salmon

Since this dish cooks entirely in the microwave, it goes together in a flash.

2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon peanut oil
4 skinless salmon fillets
1/2 cup chopped green onions
2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil

Combine ginger, salt, and peanut oil in a small bowl. Brush over fillet; set aside.

Combine onions, soy sauce, and sesame oil in a small bowl.

Place salmon in an microwave-safe dish. Cover dish with plastic wrap. Microwave at high for 2 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 2 minutes. Depending on the strength of your microwave and the thickness of your salmon, you may need to microwave for an additional minute or two.

Remove the dish from the microwave. Drizzle onion mixture over fish.
