Crock Pot Spiced Lemon Salmon

Are you welcoming these crazy crock pot recipes??  In your heart, you know I'm right about this being such a magical invention.  Just admit it.  I might have an unnatural and/or ridiculous obsession with this kitchen appliance-and I will embrace it!

Here is why the crack crock (it's addictive!) is so dang uh-mazing:

1. Allows you to cook for large groups with ease
2. Eliminates a tired cook after work because dinner is ready when you walk in the door!
3. In general recipes call for less oil, sugar, butter, etc and more spices, vegetables and other goodies to increase healthfulness
4. Easy clean-up: only 1 pot to wash!
5. So diverse: we've made Indian food, granola, sandwiches, and now salmon!

I ventured into fish with my crock pot.  Don't worry the house did not smell fishy and the outcome was highly favorable.  Anticipate using my crock for more fish/seafood recipes...

Crock Pot Spiced Lemon Salmon

2 medium size pieces of salmon
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp olive oil
Dash of salt and pepper
4 thin slices of fresh lemon
2 large sheets of aluminum foil

Place fish on the aluminum foil skin down.  Evenly divide the seasonings over both pieces, adding more to your taste preferences.  Drizzle the oil evenly over the two pieces of fish to ensure moist fish.  Place two slices of fresh lemon on both pieces.  Wrap them up in the foil into two packets.

Place fish packets in dry crock pot on low for 3-4 hours until fully cooked (flakes with with a fork)

This could not be more simple!  If you like spicier dishes, sprinkle red pepper flakes or a pinch of cayenne on top of the fish.

Serve alongside a salad or steamed vegetables.

{Place right into the crock pot, turn to high and walk away}

{A peek into the after, it's cooked and smells delicious!}

And Jesus said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.”

Mark 1:17
