I love my slow cooker. Thanks to it’s magic, I no longer suffer from Salmonophobia. Until this very afternoon, I have never attempted to cook Salmon. It is sad but true. But no more!

This recipe was made with 6 Salmon fillets I had in my freezer. I have yet to try with fresh salmon but it is definitely on my to-do-when-I have-a-life list. Come to think of it, that list is getting kinda long. In the mean time, have some salmon! This slow-cooker salmon is great served warm on rice, accompanied by some fancy steamed vegetables. It is also great cold from the fridge, crumbled over salad or pasta or sliced as a part of a cold buffet. Yum!

Ingredients:

6 Salmon fillets (the package’s weight was 680 grams)
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/8 cup lime juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tsp crushed garlic
1 tsp minced ginger root (I keep mine in the freezer and grate it frozen. Real convenient)

Preparation:

Place salmon pieces in the slow cooker  (still frozen is fine). mix the sauce ingredients and pour over salmon. Cover and cook on High for 1 hour.

Yum! That sounds like the perfect blend of Asian flavors.
