“I’ve been making this super-fast microwave dish for 20 years,“ shares Vicki Ruiz from Twin Falls, Idaho. “It couldn’t be easier or more delicious, and I always get compliments…even from people who don’t normally like fish!“ VICKI’S TIP. “Any leftovers make great salmon patties the next day. Simply add an egg and cracker crumbs to hold the salmon together, then fry in butter until both sides are golden brown.”
