Slow Cooker Poached Salmon sounds delicious for a summer dinner, and using the slow cooker will keep your kitchen cool. And this easy dinner idea is low-carb, dairy-free, and gluten-free and if you omit the wine it can also be Paleo.
You might be thinking it seems odd to cook fish in a slow cooker, but if you’ve ever had amazing poached salmon in a restaurant you’ll realize that this Slow Cooker Poached Salmon from The Kitchn makes a lot of sense. Poaching salmon brings out the flavor and keeps the fish moist, and using the slow cooker means there is some free time for the cook.
You make the poaching liquid right in the slow cooker, and then add the fish to cook for an hour, or slightly longer if you prefer your fish more well done. And if you’re making this in the summer, using the slow cooker keeps the kitchen cool. I’d eat this with some of my favorite Creamy Cucumber-Dill Sauce for Fish for a perfect Summer Dinner.
