Recipe by Mike McCarthy
Seasoned Cooking April 1999 Issue. A Fool's Delight, by Philip R. Gantt. This is an actual recipe from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game Cookbook. It is unusual and although I haven't yet tried it, it seems like an innovative idea.

Although others mention how this is not green, I will say that out of fun and curiousity we tried it once. Yes, it is a lengthy process to cook a piece of fish but it is fun and a neat thing to show the kids. Sorry to those of you whe are upset from this little experiment. It was worth the try.
- 1 (4 -7 lb) whole salmon
- 1 lemon, sliced
- 1⁄2 onion, sliced
- herbs, of your choice (tarragon and savory recommended)
- 6 tablespoons butter
Directions See How It's Made
- Place the whole salmon in the center of the foil, season with herbs inside and out.
- Place half the slices of butter inside of the fish and the other half on top of the fish.
- Do the same with the slices of lemon, arranging them in the cavity and on top of the fish.
- Fold the foil and roll the edges so that the entire fish is sealed.
- Turn on the dishwasher, normal or hot cycle and run your dishwasher as you normally would.
- (Please don't use any soap or anything else) By the time the washer is done with the drying cycle, the fish will be done and ready to serve.
- Simply unwrap the fish at the dinner table and serve with vegetables of your choice.
