All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.


Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

to plan a Mediterranean vacation


  • 4 tablespoons feta cheese, crumbled (40g)
  • 2 tablespoons panko crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 8oz (225g) salmon filet
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ¼ teaspoon chili flakes
  • 2 tablespoons black olives, thinly sliced
  • 1 artichoke hearts, quartered


  1. In a bowl mix the feta cheese, panko, parsley, lemon zest, and garlic powder until a coarse crumble is formed.
  2. Season the salmon with salt and pepper and sprinkle with the panko mixture, making a ‘crust’ over the salmon. Set aside.
  3. Place the wine, butter, chili flakes, olives, and artichokes into the Anyday dish. Cover with the lid (knob lifted) and cook in the microwave for 2-3 minutes or until the liquids have come to a simmer and the butter is fully melted.
  4. Add the salmon (panko-crust side up) and continue cooking for 2-3 minutes, or until the fish is almost completely cooked. For thicker filets, add another 1-2 minutes of cooking time.
  5. Serve the salmon alongside the sauce and vegetables.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Substitute the salmon for halibut or cod for equally delicious results.
  • Substitute the parsley with mint for a refreshing touch.
  • If artichokes are unavailable, you may substitute with cherry tomatoes or asparagus.
