Sounds completely crazy, but apparently it has been tried and tested! That is according to a young Culmore man. On Saturday night this said young chap told myself and Martina about how he’d cooked his salmon on the previous evening. ‘I just wrapped it in tinfoil and placed it in the dishwasher. I had to pop out for a short while and on my return the salmon was steamed to perfection’.

Apparently it tasted delicious. When we asked him about the fishy smell then present in the dishwasher he hadn’t noticed it! So if you think it’s worth the risk, do try and let us know. But perhaps use the steamer just to be on the safe side; unless you want fishy dishes for the foreseeable future too! But it did make us smile so fair play to the young Culmore chap!
