Cooking time

Prep: 5 minutes Cook: 5 minutes

Skill level



Serves 2

An absolute no-brainer which still has a fabulous flavour. The brief cooking time is just long enough for the tomatoes to burst and their juices mingle with those of the salmon to make a kind of fish stew for zero effort. Also super-quick so when you are completely exhausted you can still eat healthily.

  • 2 Salmon fillets (organic is best)
  • 14 Cherry tomatoes (or 1 pack; I use on the vine)
  • Salt (Maldon's sea salt is excellent)
  • 1 Garlic clove


  1. Place salmon fillets on a microwaveable plate, skin side down.

  2. Balance cherry tomatoes on top, removing stalks.

  3. Skin garlic clove and chop very finely, then sprinkle over the fish and tomatoes.

  4. Finish with a good pinch of salt.

  5. Cover and microwave for 3-4 minutes, depending on power, until the fish is just cooked.
