Recipe Review- Asian Poached Salmon
Recipe Type: Slow Cooker
Serves: 6
Use wild caught salmon (not farm raised). Salmon is an AWESOME source of good omega 3 fatty acids. I bought minced garlic in the jar instead of cloves to save time. I had to make this one on a weekend while I was home since it would over cook on a work day. Cook time is 3-4 hours in the slow cooker!
  • 6 frozen salmon fillets, thawed
  • 3⁄4 cup chopped green onions, divided
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt, 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 heads romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 2 oranges, sectioned
  • 1 (2.25-oz) package sliced almonds
  • 1 cup sliced English cucumber
  • 1 cup organic Asian sesame salad dressing
  1. Coat a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.
  2. Place salmon in slow cooker.
  3. Bring 1 cup water, 1⁄2 cup green onions, soy sauce, ginger,garlic, salt and pepper to a boil in a saucepan.
