Dishwasher Salmon, with Couscous, and fresh, crisp, green beans. I know, it sounds weird. It’s really not. This is based on a method of cooking that is very old. The problem with this type of cooking (Sous-vide) is that in most cases it requires a machine that is a bit pricey. However, modern times and modern solutions have come to the rescue. Most of us have dishwashers. And if you don’t have a food saver to vacuum seal your food, then use tightly sealed mason jars. I don’t know about you, but my time is not always managed as well as I’d like and I have a family to feed. So if I can do two things at one time then I’m happy; multi-tasking at its best. Doing the dishes and making dinner. Come along for this recipe if you are feeling a bit overwhelmed and want an adventure.
Ingredients per bag/jar:
- 1 Salmon filet per person
- 1 slice of Lemon
- 1 slice of Lime
- ¼ teaspoon of Dried Dill weed
- ¼ teaspoon of old Bay
- 1 pat of butter
Vacuum seal the bag. Seal the jar tightly if you are using mason jars. Place on the top rack of the Dishwasher.
I bought my couscous at the bulk section of my local store and placed the ingredients of the couscous, Chicken stock (using the directions included with the bulk item) along with fresh black pepper into my jar and placed it on the top rack.
Place the green beans into the package/jar, with a pat up butter, a bit garlic, salt and pepper, and seal the bag up tightly. Placing the items on the top rack of the dishwasher, making sure they didn’t touch each other, I closed the door of the dishwasher and turned it on to a normal wash cycle with the normal dry cycle. When the dishwasher clicked off…dinner was served.
