Salted Salmon and Vegetables Sake-steamed in the Microwave

I make this sake steamed recipe when I wanted something else besides cooked salted salmon. You don't need much seasoning and it's easy to make with a microwave. Enjoy with vegetables.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Salted salmon
1 filet
Green pepper
About 1/8
Shimeji mushrooms
1/3 pack
Cooking sake
1 tablespoon
Butter (or margarine)
1 tablespoon
To taste


1. Julienne the green pepper and onion. Tear the shimeji mushrooms into bite-sized pieces.
2. Roll out approximately 30 cm of parchment paper, which can hold the salmon filet and put the vegetables.
3. Lay the salmon on top, pour the sake and wrap the parchment paper like a candy.
4. Microwave for 3 minutes in 700 W.
5. Add butter on top and re-wrap to let the butter melt with residual heat and it's ready You can eat it with ponzu if you like.
