Horror icon Vincent Price has 210 acting credits to his name. These range from the Abominable Mr. Phibes to Edward Scissorhands’ creator to Ratigan, a monster of depravity, He has a distinct look and voice that lends to sinister and campy roles.
That said, there was nothing more sinister and campy than when he demonstrated how he cooks fish in a dishwasher.
I’ve always been interested in trying, it… but it’s just too spooky. However, it should be noted that Vincent Price was a gourmet cook, having published several cookbooks with his wife, Mary. I assume he knew what he was talking about.
Of course, there’s the big question: can you was your dishes while cooking the fish? It seems to be a question that’s been plaguing the good contributors on Wikipedia. Per the entry on dishwasher salmon (yes, it’s notable enough to have its on Wiki entry):
Pieces of salmon are spiced and wrapped tightly in at least two layers of aluminum foil and put in a dishwasher. The dishwasher is set to perform the wash and dry cycle. Depending on the model of the dishwasher, the salmon is cooked, steamed and ripened. An advantage of the method is that the prepared dish does not smell. There is nothing preventing one from washing the dishes at the same time, provided that the package is tight enough.
Delicious salmon and clean dishes to serve them on? What is this… the future?
