1. Wash and peel a whole onion. Make a deep crisscross cut in the end opposite the root end of the onion! Don't cut deeply enough to go all the way through the onion.
2. Put the onion in a dish as deep as possible, and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave at 500 W for about 3 minutes.
3. Open the plastic wrap slightly to pour out the liquid that came out of the onion! Then, just eat the onion with ponzu sauce or your favorite seasoning to taste.
