Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

I would not have thought it was that simple.

No problem :) No you don't need to use lemon juice or anything else unless your microwave oven smells. Chances are it won't because the microwaves kills off any nasties that can cause contamination or odours.
