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


Step One – Prepare all of your ingredients

To eradicate cellulite, you need to be a little active, have a balanced diet… And a miracle homemade recipe?

                        Your best friend to fight cellulite will be… your coffee!

Caffeine is the main ingredient in many anti-cellulite creams, which can be quite expensive. After brewing your next cup of coffee in the morning, keep the remaining hot and wet coffee grounds. Next, apply the coffee on the zones where you want to decrease your cellulite. Massage deeply with circular movements, from top to bottom, in order to effectively penetrate your ski which will reduce the orange peel effect.

Repeat this movement for 10 minutes. However, you can also add a tablespoon of olive oil or honey, according to your preference, as this will moisturize your skin.

Repeat this massage every day and you will be able to see its results in one to two weeks! Your skin will be more toned and look firmer.
