Instructions Checklist
  • Thaw salmon, if frozen. Rinse the salmon and pat with paper towels. Arrange the salmon in a microwave-safe 2-quart square baking dish. Arrange asparagus and potatoes around the salmon. Combine vinegar, oil, chopped or dried dill, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Drizzle over the salmon and vegetables.

  • Cover with vented plastic wrap. Microwave on High for 10 to 12 minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork and the vegetables are tender, turning dish once halfway through cooking if necessary. If desired, garnish individual servings with additional fresh dill.
