Kitchen Hack Shows A Creative Way To Cook Salmon

Cooking a salmon dinner in the dishwasher might seem strange, but our research showed it was a surprisingly common practice - even getting recognition from the food giants at The Food Network. To those who think this might be unsafe, there are a few things to keep in mind:

1- Is your dishwasher heating properly? To test for this, just touch your dishware as soon as a cycle finishes. If your dishes are hot, you're good to go.

2- Don't cook a full fish! This method works best when you're cooking individual servings. Of course, you can cook multiple single-serving packets at once. Just don't try to put a whole fish in foil. It won't cook all the way!

Here's a simple recipe to make dishwasher salmon that you'll absolutely'll need: 

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

Coat the shiny side of a square of aluminum foil with oil, then place the salmon fillet in the center. fold the square and make it as air-tight as possible. You definitely don't want any dishwater to get in your dinner. Wrap the fillet in a second coating of aluminum foil to make sure nothing gets in. Set your dishwasher for a normal wash load, then wait. Once the load is done, your fish is ready to serve! Season with lemon and salt/pepper and enjoy! If you're still paranoid about safety, check the temperature of the fish. The thickest part of the fish should be 145 degrees Fahrenheit. If so, you're safe!

Would you try this yourself? I'm not sure if I'm entirely convinced, but I think it's definitely interesting! There's a first time for everything!
