Dishwasher Salmon

Yes. You read that title correctly. This is a thing. A real thing, and it works. Justin didn’t believe me (in fact, he was pretty much appalled by the idea of cooking food in the dishwasher, especially since you clean your dishes while doing it!) But, it works! and it didn’t turn out too bad!

DSC05071Ingredient shot. Salmon. Tinfoil, and butter.

DSC05072Put a little bit of butter on the salmon filets, and top with dill.

DSC05073Now wrap them in tinfoil, making sure that there are no seems. (I double wrapped them, just in case.)

DSC05074Next, stick it in your dishwasher (on the top rack) and turn it on. Make sure to secure the dishes so nothing goes flying around to pierce the foil packets.

DSC05075While it was running, I made a sauce to go on top. Start by melting some butter and mincing a small onion. Cook it down a bit.

DSC05076Add white wine and let it simmer for a while.

DSC05077At the end of the cycle, your dishes should be clean and your salmon should be ready.

DSC05078Ta-da! Cooked salmon! It was a little over done. Next time I make this, I’ll turn it on a light load.

DSC05079Serve with the sauce for a tasty, utilitarian meal.

  1. Wonderful blog! I’m glad I finally got here! Though… I will not make salmon in the dishwasher. Even if the recipe requires opening a bottle of wine. 🙂
