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


  • STEP 1
    Place salmon fillets on a microwaveable plate, skin side down.
  • STEP 2
    Balance cherry tomatoes on top, removing stalks.
  • STEP 3
    Skin garlic clove and chop very finely, then sprinkle over the fish and tomatoes.
  • STEP 4
    Finish with a good pinch of salt.
  • STEP 5
    Cover and microwave for 3-4 minutes, depending on power, until the fish is just cooked.
