Happy Slow Cooking Thursday! Please remember to stop by Sandra's blog at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom to see all the other wonderful slow cooking recipes.
This is the second salmon dish I have done in the crockpot this year. The first one, I just threw the fish in. While it tasted good, it wasn't as good as this salmon, which I cooked in foil packets inside of my crockpot.
--2 largish pieces of salmon
--2 T brown sugar
--1 t paprika
--1 t cumin
--1/2 t crushed garlic
--1/2 t oregano
--1/2 t kosher salt
--1/2 t red pepper
--in a medium-sized dish or small pan ( I used a glass pie plate), combine all of your spices with the brown sugar
--spread out a length of foil on the counter for each piece of fish
--put each piece of fish in the center of it's own foil
--rub the top of the salmon with your spice and sugar mixture (it's okay to mound up the spice a bit, and it is fine to only rub the top)
--fold the foil over and crimp up the sides to make a contained packet
--put the foil packets into a dry crockpot
--cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours, or on low for 3-5.
--serve with rice or quinoa and some steamed or roasted vegetables.
This had a fantastic taste. It was a bit spicy for the kids, but they each ate some after I scraped off some of the topping.
Adam and I were very happy with the flavor combination, and the salmon had a moist, flaky texture.
