Looking for a different method of cooking fish? Here you go!

No matter how much fish you eat, eventually, it all starts to taste the same. Of course you add in extra spices and flavoring, but it’s still the same old, same old. Luckily, here are five ways to cook fish that might seem a little strange to some, but to others, it’s just the way to go.

Enjoy the below ideas. Even though these might sound a little weird, these methods do work. However, if you aren’t feeling up to it, don’t try it at home!

1. Dishwasher Salmon

This method of cooking fish has been around a little while. The idea is fairly simple, too. Grab some salmon, or any other thick fish, wrap it tightly in foil, then place it in the dishwasher on a high heat cycle. By the time the cycle is done, the fish is perfectly cooked, with no fish smell left around to linger. Just to be safe, leave out the dish detergent. However, adding a little lemon to the fish before you wrap it would be a good idea!

2. Car Engine Fish

Want to grab some food on the go? Again, wrap your fish in foil with a fairly tight seal. Next, place it near the hottest part of the car engine. Drive around for about an hour; then, you’ll have some perfectly cooked fish. Be sure to let the engine block cool down a little bit before reaching in there and grabbing it out, though!

3. Moss Covered Trout

This method to cook fish requires a little bit more skill. First off, you need to know how to build a small fire. Next, you need to know how to gather some moss. The last part of this recipe requires the ability to gut the fish. Once those three steps are completed, layer a row of wet moss on top of the small fire. Finally, place the fish directly on the moss with another layer of moss covering the fish entirely. The fire will smolder under the moss creating a steam bath for the fish, cooking it in no time.

4. Rock Salt Shrimp

Looking for an awesome new way to cook up some shrimp? Grab a two-inch or deeper pan with a lid. Layer about an inch of rock salt in the bottom of the pan and heat it in the oven at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes. Next, add a layer of shrimp directly on top of the hot salt and cover them with the lid, pressing them harder against the salt. Place back in the oven for about two minutes on each side.

5. Buried Fish

You are probably familiar with burying a pig underground and cooking it, right? Well, you can do the same thing with a whole salmon. In the exact same setup, dig a salmon sized hole, line it with rocks, and burn a decent fire on top of the hole to heat the rocks. When the fire burns down, lay the seasoned and dressed salmon on top of the coals wrapped tightly in foil. Finally, bury it for about an hour and half. Once you dig it up, you will have perfectly cooked fish.

So what do you think? Which one of these strange cooking methods will you try first? I think the least obtrusive technique might be the dishwater. That also might be the one that could work our the worst as well!
