    I cooked mushrooms in microwave but baked salmon in oven after pouring on the mushroom sauce. I also added raw shrimp before baking. Husband loved it!

    This is a very good recipe. However, I cooked the mushrooms on top of the stove and baked the salmon in the oven because microwaving takes the nutrition out of the food.
