Delicious Slow-Cooked Salmon Recipe

Salmon is so delicious and versatile that it can be prepared in many ways. Our friends at Jen Reviews have a wonderful Slow-Cooked Salmon recipe that we just had to share.

But first, here are some salmon tips:

  1. Fresh fish is essential and should smell slightly of cucumber, not ammonia.
  2. Never refreeze salmon.
  3. If freezing, keep the salmon in an airtight container and consume it within a month.
  4. Leave the salmon skin on fillet when cooking as it makes it easier to flip.

Now on to slow cooking tips!

  1. You are able to put in all of your ingredients into the slow cooker and cook them together.
  2. Place the pot on a large cutting board or baking sheet when you take it out. Unless if you have a marble or granite countertop then you can place it right on it.
  3. A slow cooker is ideal for cooking salmon, even if you don’t like fish.


Let’s get started with the recipe! It is advisable to check on your dish after 2 hours of cooking and then every 30 minutes. This is due to the differences in thickness of the salmon fillet as well as the type of slow cooker you’re using.


  • 1 or 2 salmon fillet, depending on size
  • 2 lemons
  • ½ cup of chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoon of fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoon of capers
  • Salt and pepper
