Dishwasher Fish

I know this method of cooking fish has been around for a long time, my big brother gave the recipe to me several years ago. It was one of his "bachelor" meals.
I have not made it in a long time.....

Use a dishwasher safe dish...
I started with 3/4 cup of instant rice.
Added 3/4 cup of chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste and
minced onions

(You can make this without the rice, make a foil pouch for the fish instead of using a dish. Leave out the rice and broth.)

Placed some cod pieces in a single layer over the rice.
Topped the fish with lemon pepper, kosher salt and butter...
Fresh lemon slices are nice but I didn't have any on hand.

Place a tight cover on the dish... make sure it fits tight!

Put the container on the top rack of your dishwasher. Keep it level.
Wash your dishes.......

After the dishwasher has finished, remove the container...

Makes a nice one dish, no effort meal. :)

The cod is flaky, the lemon pepper and butter are my favorite toppings with this dish... you could add anything.

I would have never thought that one could cook in the dishwasher. lol. Sounds interesting, I just might have to try that one, thanks Jeanie.

Thank you Mark!
It was really easy to make and kind of tasty.
You can add what ever seasonings you like. :)
Hope you give it a try sometime...make sure your bowl has a tight lid though. :)

cowgirl said...

Thank you for giving me the idea. :)

cowgirl said...

Hey Ken, Thanks!
You'll have to share your block cooking recipes with me. That's something I've yet to try. :)
Hope all's well for you in the Carolinas.

Mike said...

Hmmm... now that's a new one on me. I've heard of engine block cooking like Ken said, but never in the dishwasher! lol. You never cease to amaze me.

cowgirl said...

lol Thanks Mike!
Hey, you could try that engine block cooking while you're racing. :)
Have a snack in the pits when the race is over. lol
Let me know if you do!

I may have to go out and buy a dishwasher.

cowgirl said...

lol Chilebrown, wonder if I could cook a big feast in mine.
Might have to try it. lol

Mark said...

Hi Jeanie - another great landmark post!

Check about for an originally long out-of-print book entitled "Manifold Destiny - A Guide to Cooking on your Car Engine". It is in it's 3rd reprint, I think.

Keep up the good work!

cowgirl said...

Thanks Mark!
I will be sure to look for that book. lol Sounds like something I'd like to try.
Thanks for the kind words and the info. :)

Hi Cowgirl,

What a superb site you have here!!.I have a batch of Venison jerky on the go at the moment. It's backstrap - and should make great eating. I wonder if you ever get to do any Pheasant hunting?. If so, you might give smoked Pheasant a try. There are few things in life better than a smoked Pheasant sandwich!.

Cowgirl; whichever Cowboy gets to put his horse in your stable, will be a derned lucky man!.



Julian Schmechel said...

P.S.I wanted to try smoked Chupacabra - but couldn't find ANY in the Supermarket!.



cowgirl said...

Wow Julian, how kind! Thank you so much for checking out my blog and thank you for the kind words. :)

I've not hunted pheasant in awhile. I think about it every year and seem to be too busy during season or something happens to keep me from going.
Your smoked pheasant sandwich sounds wonderful!
There are a few pheasant that hang out around my farm, I enjoy watching them interact with my guineas. lol

Your venison jerky sounds great too. Are you smoking the jerky?
Bet it will be tasty!

Your site is interesting. I just took a quick peek but will check it out farther.

I have not had any luck finding chupacabras, but am sure they hang out in my barn after dark. lol

Happy hunting to you and Thank you again for the kind words.

Take care,

Julian Schmechel said...

Hi Cowgirl,

Yes. I'll smoke the Venison jerky over Oak and Maple wood chips. Of course - when it's finished, I SHOULD leave it to mature; but my willpower may not be strong enough!.

As for the Chupacabras. Hmmm....I'd probably smoke them over Mesquite!.

Did you know that in Iceland, the locals smoke Lamb over Sheep dung( they have no trees). Now there's a unique flavour!.


cowgirl said...

Mmmm... Oak and maple smoked venison jerky sounds great. I imagine that will be hard to leave alone long enough to age. lol

Mesquite smoked chupacabra, sounds like a winner to me! haha

I didn't know that they use sheep dung in Iceland. That is very interesting. My area is similar, not many trees. In the old days folks used buffalo chips for heat. While camping I've tried dried beef chips. It works great, puts out a very hot heat, but I'm not fond of the little ashes that float around and land on the food. lol

I did a bit of reading on your site, that was a nice buck you have pictured.
I was able to get a little 6 point buck and a doe this season. Makes for good eating this winter.

Thanks for your post Julian!

Julian Schmechel said...

Yeh, Roe deer makes very good eating. They are small;but always tender. Roe Chili is also a winner!.

If you love hunting,you should find a lot of interesting reading on the 'Upland Equations' blog.



cowgirl said...

I imagine roe chili is wonderful! I favor the smaller deer myself. Usually look for a doe each fall.

I do love hunting, mainly deer, quail and dove.. Also love fishing.
I am looking forward to reading more on your blog. It looks very interesting Julian!

My boyfriend has been bugging me to let him try this method of cooking fish, as he says he's done it before with good results, but for the life of me I just can't fathom it. Since reading up on your method I understand now LOL I suppose I'll have to lighten up and let him try it, why not live on the edge :)

Nice photos by the way, sure makes one want to try it.


cowgirl said...

Thanks V!
Hope you give it a try. You can put any seasonings on the fish that you like.
Most important thing is to use a tight sealing lid. :)

Good luck to you!
