Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.


To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

The Medium Shallow Dish


  • 4 tablespoons feta cheese, crumbled (40g)
  • 2 tablespoons panko crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 8oz (225g) salmon filet
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ¼ teaspoon chili flakes
  • 2 tablespoons black olives, thinly sliced
  • 1 artichoke heart, quartered


  1. In a bowl mix the feta cheese, panko, parsley, lemon zest, and garlic powder until a coarse crumble is formed.
  2. Season the salmon with salt and pepper and sprinkle with the panko mixture, making a ‘crust’ over the salmon. Set aside.
  3. Place the wine, butter, chili flakes, olives, and artichokes into the Anyday dish. Cover with the lid (knob lifted) and cook in the microwave for minutes or until the liquids have come to a simmer and the butter is fully melted.
  4. Add the salmon (panko-crust side up) and continue cooking at Power Level 7tooltip for 2-4 minutes or until the fish is almost completely cooked. For thicker filets, add another 1-2 minutes of cooking time.
  5. Serve the salmon alongside the sauce and vegetables.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Substitute the salmon for halibut or cod for equally delicious results.
  • Substitute the parsley with mint for a refreshing touch.
  • If artichokes are unavailable, you may substitute with cherry tomatoes or asparagus.

Recipe notes

  • Remember that the thickness or height of the fish determines the cooking time. If needed, add 1-2 minutes until the fish is cooked to your liking.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
