I am still dreaming about this recipe. It was perfect in every way.
It was very simple and fuss free with only a few ingredients and prep work.
It was the most delicious salmon I've ever had in my life, and that's a lot.
The kids ate every bite of their second helpings and happily scooped up the salmon and veggies into their endive lettuce cups. I was thrilled that they were devouring healthy endive and loving it.
Lastly, using a crock pot was genius (I'm not tooting my own horn, I saw the method in Taste of Home magazine). It literally ensures a perfectly cooked and moist salmon.
So here is the recipe. Front and center. Please give it a try, I know you'll love it too.
|Cous Cous with cinnamon, curry and currants|
You Will Need:
2 lbs. *wild salmon fillet, skinned.
1 cup fresh orange juice
2 cups chardonnay (I used Mad Housewife)
1 bulb fennel, sliced
1 small red onion, sliced
1 tablespoon capers
1 teaspoon French grey sea salt
Endive lettuce cups
1 Orange thinly sliced
Putting it all together:
Fold a 36 inch piece of aluminum foil lengthwise to a width slightly larger than the salmon fillet. Place foil in a 4-6 qt. slow cooker with foil ends hanging over the handles.
Combine orange juice, Chardonnay, fennel, onion, capers and salt in the slow cooker. Place salmon on top. Cover and cook on high heat setting for 45-60 minutes.
Test salmon for doneness at 45 minutes by using a fork to gently pull at salmon. When it easily flakes it is done. Test every 5 minutes after 45 min until done.
When salmon is done, remove it from the slow cooker by carefully lifting the ends of the foil and placing it on a platter. Using a fork, scoop into endive cups, crackers or on top of cous cous. Dollop with a bit of Caper Creme Sauce, recipe to follow.
Caper Creme Sauce:
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 tablespoons red onion, diced
1 tablespoon capers
|Into the slow cooker you go. See you in 45-60 minutes.|
|capers add the all important salt factor to the fish|
