Dishwasher Fish... again.. :)

I've made this in the past.. it's an easy way for me to cook a meal while I'm doing other things.

This time I used some Seafood Splash seasoning and it tasted really good!

I used 1/2 cup of instant rice and 1/2 cup of broth, sprinkled with the Seafood Splash and some minced dry onion...



added fish fillets, lemon pepper and a few dabs of butter....





sealed with foil and a lid. ( seal tight )



place on the top rack of the dishwasher and turn it on....

the heat from the machine poaches the fish....


you can get a few things accomplished while supper is cooking... :)




I topped the fish with green onions....




it was so flaky and tender...




I loved the addition of the Seafood Splash and will definately use it again....



This method has been around for years.. I have only tried fish but imagine other seafoods would be great poached this way.

It was nice being able to have supper ready when I finished my work.

Just something different............

That's some seriously ingenious multitasking.

Thanks Kirby! It was actually pretty tasty this time. I think it was the seasoning.. I usually just use lemon pepper and butter. The Seafood Splash added a nice touch. :)

Thanks again. :)

That is amazing! I have never heard of such a thing!

Thanks Apple Pie Gal! It's been around for awhile. Someone said they saw a show years ago where the man wrapped the fish in foil instead of using a dish.
It works great. :)

just too funny... heard about lasagna in the washer, just assumed it was an urban legend

lol David.. you need to get a dishwasher.... Take some time off for yourself. :) I'm not sure what the fillets were. It was a white fish. I do know that it wasn't catfish though. A friend gave these to me and I forgot what she said that they were.. maybe walleye.
Thanks David! :)

Dave.. Welcome home! :) I enjoyed the pics of your last 6 months. Looked like heaven. :)
I've not tried lasagna...that sounds great!

Thanks Dave. :)

Wait a minute. I understand the cooking idea,,,but are there dirty dishes in there getting washed too! See, that would be great do the dishes and cook all in one swoop. I didn't know if the foil seal would keep out the soapy water. That wouldn't taste good but yours looks yummy!

cowgirl said...

lol Mrs JP, it works great! You cook supper while the dishes wash. You do need to make sure the container is sealed tight.
I've not had one leak yet.
Thanks! :)

This sounds really cool! Was the rice already cooked? Did you really wash the dishes with dish detergent at the same time or did you just run a rinse cycle?

Hi Mike, Thanks!
The rice isn't cooked but I use instant or minute rice. Yes, the dishes wash while the fish poaches.. so you need to make sure the container is sealed tight.
I like to use foil and then the container lid. The foil overlaps down the side of the container so if the lid did happen to slip open, the foil still has everthing covered tight.
I use the wash and hot dry cycles.
Good luck to you if you give it a try! :)

Thanks again Mike!

Dishwasher fish? You have done it all now. Was this your idea and do you get to claim fame to it? Regardless, heck of an idea, will it work for shrimp?

cowgirl said...

Hey Dave, how are things up north? Hope summer has been good to you. :)
I've made this before and even posted about it...maybe a year or two ago. It's not a new thing. I bet shrimp would work.. I'm going to give it a try when I get a chance.
Thanks Dave!
