Not sure why it does it, but cooking at aa lower power is the answer.


I'm slightly puzzled as I usually cook ordinary salmon this way at least once a week without any problem...the only change this time was the fact it was Sockeye salmon.   The only difference as far as I could tell is that the texture was finer.

Thanks peeps....I think your probably right, it was boned. Never had the problem before though.

I will say, there is something quite different in the texture of the Sockeye salmon. ie very fine textured, rather than the industrial stuff with large flakes I'm more accustomed to.

Again may I impose on you Forkers wot are renowned for their culinary prowess.

Cooked some Sockeye salmon for lunch today and was rather surprised by the results. Although I rarely cook anything in the microwave, I do usually use it for cooking all types of fish.

As normal, I placed this salmon in a heatproof dish with a little water, seasoned, covered it with cling-film, pierced it & cooked it for 3 mins.

During the cooking period there pops & bangs taking place within the microwave and when retrieved, the salmon looked more akin to mashed tinned salmon. 

I don't understand as this has never happened with the farmed salmon I usually buy.

Have cleaned the salmon spottled  microwave oven now!

Alternative to usual shed roof felting

Posted: 15/12/2014 at 11:35

Sadly I didn't spot this thread until just now. I agree, the felt used in initial construction is feeble and probably only has a lifespan of a couple of years.

I recently had my summerhouse & shed/workshop re-felted. The process (although a little more expensive than normal felting) is far superior and I received a 25 year written guarantee with mine.

This process involves laying a base felt to the shed roof using heat (after stripping the old felt) to this base felt a heavy mineral felt is added using a blowtorch, the two then bond tacks or nails are used.

Just another option.

Glad to see you have decided to stay....I'm just bracing myself for another 'sorry' thread.

From a non-dancer, Jake has done fantastically well, but in reality not progressed too far beyond a good party dancer and (IMHO) it was his time to go. Mark is marginally better but still far, far behind the other three.

Roll-on next week!

Well that's just like me DK. 


Bless! xx Just a detail, but I mentioned it to explain my doubt about it working...I'm pretty sure those via YouTube will work.

Thanks for starting your 'Gran' thread, really hope she heeds the replies.
