This is an actual recipe that originally appeared in a cookbook
published in the State of Alaska Department
of Fish and Game.
ALASKAN DISHWASHER SALMON
1 whole salmon, 4 to 7 lbs
1 lemon, sliced
Foil for wrapping
1/2 onion, sliced
Herbs (tarragon, savory, dill, etc)
6 slices of butter
Place the whole salmon in the center of the foil, season
with herbs inside and out. Place half the slices of butter
inside of the fish and the other half on top of the fish.
Do the same with the slices of lemon, arranging them in the
cavity and on top of the fish. Fold the foil and roll the
edges so that the entire fish is sealed.
Finally, arrange your dishes in the dishwasher, leaving room
on the top shelf for the foil wrapped salmon. Place the salmon
on the top rack of the dishwasher, being careful to not pierce
the foil. Turn on the dishwasher, normal or hot cycle and wash
your dishes as you normally would. By the time the washer is
done with the drying cycle, the fish will be done and ready
to serve on your clean dishes. Simply unwrap the fish at
the dinner table and serve with vegetables of your choice.
Number of Servings: 6 to 8
Preparation Time: 40 minutes
