In Decatur, Alabama, Mary Kay Dixson relies on her microwave to cook this tender fish in a jiffy. With its sprinkling of bright peppers, the mildly seasoned dish makes a pretty entree for two.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 10 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 2 salmon steaks (6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cajun or Creole seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, optional
  • 1/2 cup diced green pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced sweet red pepper
