    Default Cooking Fish in a Dishwasher

    I tried this method tonight. It works a treat. Utterly foolproof.

    Needs:

    * salmon fillets
    * aluminum foil
    * a lemon
    * a few butter pats
    * electric dishwasher

    Place the fish on two large sheets of aluminum foil. Squeeze on some lemon juice and place the pats of butter on the salmon fillets. Seal the fillets well in the foil, and place the foil packet in the top wire basket of your electric dishwasher. DO NOT ADD SOAP OR DETERGENT. Close the dishwasher door, set the dishwasher on the hottest wash cycle, complete with drying cycle, and let it run through a full cycle. When the cycle is complete the fish will be cooked just right.

    You *do* realize that you squander a hell of a lot of resources for an ineffective way of cooking, right?

    Still, it was an interesting experiment, I'll give you that.

    Yuo can also cook fish if wrapped in heavy foil + buttered + seasoned, and place it ontop of the motor of your car, and then take a long drive through the country, I forget how long, maybe 45 minutes, it was in Maxim magazine years ago.

    If you did that, wouldn't there be traces of neuro-toxins in the fish?

    No, just engine grease and hydrocarbon residue!

    I think if you wrapeed the hell out of it in heavy foil it would be OK. Fine in emergency circumstances only, considering the abundance of drive-thrus in thsi nation.

    I guess I could see it. I once ate a slice of an apple that was cooked under a pile of compost (wrapped thoroughly in foil and plastic wrap). Tasted fine.

    I could really go for a baked apple right now actually...

    A good point... You can only imagine how guilty I felt while tucking into the fillets, with a nice dill sauce.

    However, your view is myopic. A sealed unit such as a dishwasher is actually a fairly efficient way to cook. The washer is a A-Rated Bosch with all sorts of enegy efficiency guarantees provided by the German manufacturer.

    Energy consumption would be limited to steam generation and any moving parts (predominantly the internal fan). Even the volume of water used is very low.

    A quick search comparing efficiencies of steam vs. conventional:
    Federal Energy Management Program: FEMP Designated Product: Commercial Steam Cookers

    But, you're correct - raw carrots and a microwaved potato is probably less carbon consumptive than a dishwasher.
