Think of this recipe as a base for all destiny sluggish-cooked salmon fish recipes. Feel unfastened to interchange up the citrus you use, or lose it altogether! You could make a bed of sliced onions or leeks alternatively, or throw in a few aromatics like rosemary or thyme. Swap out lemon juice and broth for white wine and melted butter. Do you!
1 -2 lb. skin-on salmon fillet
Freshly ground black pepper
1 lemon, cut into rounds
1 1/2 c. low-sodium vegetable broth
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 tbsp. freshly chopped dill, for garnish
- Line slow cooker with a large piece of parchment paper. Add a layer of lemon slices to the bottom of the slow cooker, then lay salmon on top.
- Season salmon generously with salt and pepper. Add broth and lemon juice to slow cooker. The liquid should come about halfway up your filet. Top salmon with more lemons and cook on low for 2 hours, or until opaque and flaky.
