Salmon, Dishwasher (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: "The Food Processor Bible," by Norene Gilletz
Serves: 6, can be doubled

1/4 cup fresh basil or dill
6 6-to-8-oz. each salmon fillets
1 to 2 tbsp. olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Juice of 1 lemon or lime

Cut 3 squares of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Spray each piece of foil with non-stick spray. Place 2 salmon fillets in a single layer on each piece of foil. Brush salmon lightly with oil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and juice. Top with basil or dill.

Wrap tightly, pressing out air and sealing edges of foil securely so water won't get in.

Place foil packets seam-side-up on top rack of dishwasher. Run dishwasher through the normal cycle, including the full drying cycle, approximately 50 minutes. Carefully unwrap fish and serve with salsa. Delicious hot or cold.

Author's Notes:
No dishes, no soap, please! Be sure to use heavy-duty aluminum foil. Regular foil could tear from the water pressure and you might end up with fish in your filter - "gefiltered fishe!"

I've poached salmon in the dishwasher and it comes out beautifully moist and delicious. The recipe below uses fillets. If using a very large whole salmon, you might have to run it through part of a second cycle, depending on its size and thickness. Enjoy!

Poster's Notes:
Norene was just talking about this method of cooking salmon while she was on her book tour in Edmonton!
