It was definitely a challenge for us to pick only three. Congratulations to each of the three winners: Cristina Arganese, Helen, and Anna Cotter. You’ve each won a Panasonic 27l Microwave! Check out the delicious winning entries below.

Microwave Salmon o Leekie

Entered by Cristina Arganese Serves 2 1 leek, finely sliced 500 ml vegetable stock 250gm basmati rice 300 gm salmon fillet, cut into chunks Finely grated zest of lemon and juice Handful parsley Put leek into a large microwave dish with 4-5 tablespoons of the vegetable stock. Cover with cling wrap, pierce the plastic with a knife. Microwave on high for 5 mins. Uncover the dish. Stir in the rice and remaining stock into the leek mixture. Recover with cling wrap (pierce the plastic again). Cook for 13-15 mins, stirring half way through, until rice is cooked. Add salmon, cover again. Cook for another 5 mins. Stir in parsley and lemon juice and zest. Let stand for 5 mins before serving.

Microwave Plum Pudding

Entered by Helen 1 400 gram jar of fruit mince (from any supermarket) 250 grams brown sugar 250 grams self raising flour 3 eggs – beaten 150 grams marmalade 1/4 cup of sherry or brandy 120 grams chocolate melts 1 tablespoon mixed spice Mix all ingredients together. Line a microwave proof bowl with baking paper. Pour in mixture and cover top with baking paper. Cook on medium for 20 minutes. If skewer doesn’t come out clean cook for 5 minutes more. I cook this often, putting it in the oven just as I serve the main course. Serve with cream, custard or icecream.

In a separate bowl, place the remaining ingredients and beat well for 2 to 3 minutes. Spoon the mixture on top of the syrup and spread evenly. Cover loosely with glad wrap and cook in the microwave on high for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove and sit for 5 minutes. Turn out onto a warmed plate and serve hot with hot custard and extra syrup and fruit. YUMMY! My kids LOVE it 🙂
