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!

Slow cooker Maple Salmon


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)


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.

The maple, soy and ginger combination sounds delicious.
