Barefoot by the Sea: That's one CLEAN fish!

That's one CLEAN fish!

Recently, I've come across this recipe for Salmon....cooked in the DISHWASHER?  I have to admit, this completely made my stomach turn....just because it sounds like a very odd way to cook but I figured I'd share for my other curious friends in the blog world. 

DISHWASHER SALMON - Recipe from Real Simple

1 tablespoon olive oil
4 6-ounce pieces salmon fillet
¼ cup fresh lime juice
kosher salt and black pepper
1 lemon, cut into wedges
heavy-duty foil

  1. Grease the shiny side of two 12-inch squares of heavy-duty foil with the oil. Place 2 pieces of fish side by side on each square. Fold up the outer edges of the foil (to contain any liquid) and drizzle the fish with the lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Fold the foil closed to form 2 airtight packets. (To test the seal, press down on a packet gently with your hand. If air escapes easily, rewrap.)
  3. Place the packets in the top rack of the dishwasher. Run a normal cycle. Remove the fish from the foil and serve with the lemon wedges. Serves 4
A take-the-risk-out-of-making-dinner-in-the-dishwasher tip: Richard Vergili, a food-safety instructor at the Culinary Institute of America, in New York City, says that as long as a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the fish reads 145° F, it’s safe to eat―and probably pretty moist.

I'm not exactly a salmon fan but I'd love to hear from YOU if you have tried this in the past or if you're adventurous enough to try it out!

Have a great weekend everybody!


  1. oh my! I don't think I am adventurous enough!

    hugs! Kim @ Frost Me!

  2. that's disgusting! and the prospect of smelling salmon everytime i ran the dishwasher for the next 3 months is not very appealing...oh and i don't have a dishwasher ;-)

  3. I've heard of this, but like Kim, I don't think I'd be adventurous enough to try it.

  4. Like you girls, I think it sounds gross and super stinky but I thought it was worth posing the question ;)

  5. Yeah, that would be a no vote for me too. My luck the package would explode inside the dishwasher. YUCK!
