Title: Dianes Dishwasher Salmon
Detail: Dear Octobre and Timothy Patrick Twaddle,

My brother, John Fleisher, called and asked me to send you my "famous" and "infamous" recipe for cooking salmon in the dishwasher. I have not done it for quite some time--but then I have not had any GREAT Alaskan salmon to cook since our last trip with you!

DISHWASHER SALMON

1. Have Salmon pieces uniform in size. (I found individual serving packets worked best but I don't see why a fillet would not work.)

2. Season the Salmon according to your personal taste. I used Salt, Pepper and Butter for mine, topped with a sprig of Fresh Rosemary.

3. Wrap each piece loosely in a piece of saran wrap. Then wrap each piece separately in a COMPLETELY water-tight packet of kitchen foil, using either one layer of heavy duty or several layers of the regular foil.

4. Place the packets of foil on the top rack of your dishwasher. WITHOUT adding any detergent, run dishwasher as you would for a light or regular washing cycle.

NOTE: It is best not to run the Salmon through the drying cycle. Just stop the dishwasher before the dry cycle begins and keep the salmon in the dishwasher, keeping it warm, until you are ready to serve it. Salmon will be cooked perfectly at the end of the cycle. If you know how long your dishwasher takes to run through the cycle, you can time the cooking of the salmon accordingly so that it will be done just when YOU are ready to serve it.

This recipe is Compliments of

They were enjoying a night cap if you will.

Following me so far?

It's a Brass Bell thst is rather well polished, kind of largish, nice & shiney, & very very reachable. Attached to the bell is a rope ...

Chuck Zeman
King Salmon (smiles)

so the story goes:

Mom (Lisa * Chases' mom) e-mails me one fine day in the middle of summer asking if there was a 'spot' that Chuck (Dad of Chase & uncle Dave) could come to sitka and fish - they're from the Denver area ~

AND ideally on Chases' boat...

So being the hard hearted individual that i am - i 'found' Chuck: dad of Chase & uncle Dave a '2 spots' fishing with his son for two (2) days.

OKAY ~ so... i met them at the airport, along with the Ralston brothers (also from Denver who just happen to be fishing on Chases' boat too...

...Later that day - boats coming in - Dad & Uncle head down to where Chase will be - Tim telling Chase there would be a suprise for him later...

So these two guys, sun glasses: hoods: video cameras going approach the boat asking about the days catch.

Chase begins explaining the harvest for the day and then just sorta looks, and pauses, and looks again and says "Pop?"

POP??? is that YOU?

Nice ~ (grin grin)

Now, I'm not there, but i bet i know exactly how this went down ...

The capt'n is in the cabin trying to take a picture - and there's Harold, John, Jay & Jim.

the (WE'LL REFER TO HIM AS THE PHOTOGRAPHER) photographer/captain is saying something like "higher" hold em higher! ~ No don't cover your face... smile - WAIT! THE LIGHT! Smile!

ok i got it now! Perfect ~ nope Jim moved ~ Jim hold em up -

Smile! Smile Bigger!

NOTE: EXPERIENCE tells me by just looking at the picture i know those aren't real (reel?) smiles any more.

In reality they are actually gritting their teeth - in what USED to be a smile. (problay a few NAUGHTY words being tossed towards the poor photographer about now then CLICK!

Capt'n/photographer - says WAIT - he checks out the pic, and DANG! JOHN! oh no john! ~ turned his fish sideways!
