Confetti Salmon Steaks

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 10 min.


2 servings

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.


  • 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


  1. Place the salmon in an ungreased 8-in. square microwave-safe dish. Rub with Worcestershire sauce and lemon juice; sprinkle with Cajun seasoning and salt if desired. Sprinkle peppers on top.
  2. Cover and microwave on high for 5-1/2 to 6 minutes, turning once, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Let stand, covered, for 2 minutes.
