Crock pot/slow cooker recipes have been BY FAR the most requested from my readers and friends so I decided to oblige and come up with a few! This first one is especially fun because it involves salmon which I rarely see in crock pot recipes. The key to cooking fish in the slow cooker is putting it in just 20 min before eating, which is basically the amount of time it will take to get the plates out, drinks poured, and everyone to the table.
Now, before I proceed, I feel the need to explain two things:
1) If I am being completely honest, I prefer the texture of a crispy pan-seared salmon to any other preparation (I will post a simple recipe for that soon too) BUT in terms of ease this recipe definitely has it beat and packs A TON of flavor.
2) This is a ‘meat’ and potatoes type of dish so if you are missing the greens, I suggest a fresh quick arugula salad (toss with lemon juice, olive oil, salt , pepper, and a shaving of good parm) or some quick sautéed green beans or asparagus.
*I also considered throwing in some veggies with the potatoes, so if you feel so inclined as to experiment with this, I suggest a sturdy veggie with the potato mixture OR throwing more tender greens in when you put the salmon in.
