Loulou's "Salmon al la Microonde"

I have learned how to make many a traditional French dish from my mother-in-law. Usually a meat braised in a wonderful sauce. Now that she has reached her later years she is eating more healthier than ever. She is here for the holidays and the other day she made salmon for herself and for me - (the others finished off the Osso Bucco I had made the day before.)   She used the microwave ("microonde" in French) and made a simply delicious dish for the two of us. She may be 90 but she is totally up-to-date in the kitchen.

Ingredients (per person)
One portion of fillet of salmon
1-2 tablespoon of olive oil
2 slices of lemon
2-3 sprigs of parsley
fresh pepper

Place the salmon pieces on a microwaveable plate. Drizzle the oil over and around the salmon
Season with salt and pepper. Place the lemon slices on top. Add the parsley. And microwave for 3-4 minutes or until desired doneness. Serve with boiled Yukon potatoes.
