Are your cooking skills put to the test just microwaving?

If so, then you won't believe what Gordon Ramsay and Graham Elliot were able to create in just five minutes on a recent episode of MasterChef.

As seen in this clip from the TV show, the two chefs were able to plate culinary masterpieces in less time than it takes most of us to order a pizza. Ramsay makes caramelized scallops with roasted endive and fresh cauliflower puree, while Elliot whips up grilled wild salmon with a beet juice reduction, sautéed beet greens and a beet salad with mustard vinaigrette.

When asked by fellow judge and PEOPLE.com blogger Joe Bastianich the hardest part of making the dishes, Ramsay casually replies, "The scallops literally take 90 seconds on each side."

Elliot, 36, who underwent major weight loss surgery earlier in July after nearly hitting 400 lbs., calmly says his dish simply requires "getting the temperature right on the salmon."

MasterChef airs Wednesday (9 p.m. ET) on Fox.
