    No it's not a joke - as the name implies, salmon is cooked in the dishwasher. Not only does it work, but it results in delicious, succulent salmon.

    Serves: 4 

    • 500g (1 1/4 lb) fillet salmon
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
    • handful chopped fresh dill, or to taste
    • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Tear off 4 sheets of aluminium foil large enough to wrap the fillet (or wrap individually if using 4 separate fillets). Grease one side of each piece of foil.
    2. Drizzle a little olive oil on top of the salmon and sprinkle with salt, pepper, dill and lemon juice.
    3. Wrap and carefully seal foil parcel. Test parcel by pressing on it. If air escapes, re-wrap it. Put on the top shelf of the dishwasher and run for a full cycle, with heated drying. Salmon will be done when the dishwasher runs the full cycle.

    A dishwasher is for washing dirty dishes. The water sitting in the pipes can get pretty nasty and that is what you are circulating around the food. You are essentially cooking food for your family in a cleaning appliance. What next, foam emulsions by using the blower on the vacuum. Yuk Learn to steam your salmon over a pot of water. Test your timing to get it right. So much nicer and cleaner.  -  02 Oct 2012


    I totally agree with Collins, it sounds very unhygienic and disgusting, if I were invited to dinner knowing that dishwasher salmon was on the menu I would probably throw up!  -  20 Jun 2013


    :I have cooked whole salmon in dishwasher twice before it really works salmon very succulant and delicious, besides you try getting a large salmon in the average oven. make sure it is rapped well so water does not get in  -  04 Aug 2011
