Crispy Skin Salmon Niscoise Recipe



200g skin on fillet of Atlantic salmon

100g green beans trimmed

1 hard boiled egg

1 large washed potato

6 cherry tomatoes halved

8 pitted kalamata olives

Red wine vinegar

  • Prick the potato 4 or 5 times and place on the edge of the crisper tray in the low position and put in the microwave. Select cook / grill, select potato WHOLE. Quantity 1 and press start. Halfway through the cooking process you’ll hear a beep to turn it over. Do so and press start again. Let the potato rest and meanwhile make the aioli. (Directions below).
  • Put the green beans in a microwave safe container with a tablespoon of water and cover with cling wrap. Put in the microwave and select COOK / GRILL, select veg, fresh , 100g and press start. Once removed, run under cold water.
  • Place the beans, olives, tomatoes and chives in a small bowl and add a tiny splash of red wine vinegar and a pinch of sea salt and cracked pepper and toss together.
  • Chop your egg and potato (ok if still warm) into large cubes and mix with 1-2 Tablespoons of the aioli.
  • Oil and salt your salmon fillet.
  • Put the crisper pan in on its high position. Select COOK / GRILL, meat, preheat pan yes, and start.
  • When it beeps, add salmon skin down , select 150g for the amount (as we want it a little underdone in the middle) and start. Turn the salmon when it beeps half way through. And press start again.
  • Put your bean mix down, topped with the potato/egg mix and top with your salmon. Garnish with fresh lemon and parsley .


2 eggs

1 anchovy fillet chopped

150ml lemon juice

2 garlic cloves crushed

1 Tblsp Dijon mustard

1 Tblsp white vinegar

Pinch of salt

Pinch of white pepper

250 ml vegetable oil

  • Whisk everything together apart from the oil till combined, then slowly drizzle in oil till thick and creamy. (Can be done in a food processor if you don’t want an arm workout!)

    My current favourite to make in the microwave is a mug cake dessert in it’s many variations – the fudgier & more chocolatey the better. I also have a great pumpkin & sweet corn soup recipe that i always make in the microwave.
    I could make so many more interesting recipes with the added advantage of crisping/grilling feature.
    Think i would like to try my scalloped potatoes in the microwave if I could crisp up the top at the end as it would cook the casserole so much faster.

  • Evelyn Hubbard

    I’d love to make anything that’s crispy! Pies, pasties, quiches made with fresh eggs laid by my ducks and chickens…anything that my regular, ancient microwave turns into a soggy mess! Of course, I’d still make my usual things in this beauty, I just would make all the extra yummy things I usually use the oven for. I think the oven would bet to retire if this amazing thing came to stay at my house. 😀
