1 – Place 1 and one-half cups of bowtie pasta in an uncovered baking dish with water to cover. Season with 1 teaspoon of salt. Microwave on high for 6 minutes; then microwave on 50 percent power for 8 minutes. When finished, cover to preserve warmth.
2 – Place salmon in a covered baking dish with a little calm juice. Drench in lemon juice. Season with salt, pepper, chives, tarragon, and olive oil. With a very sharp knife, slice a lemon; place atop the salmon. Finish with chopped parsley on top. Microwave on high for 8 minutes.
3 – Serve the salmon hot, atop the pasta.
