This is totally taken/adapted from my favorite blog, (besides this one of course!) the "crockpot lady": www.crockpot365.blogspot.com. These are my pictures, though, and just changed a couple of things, but really not much. I used a lemon instead of a lime (even though I'd much rather have preferred lime, just didn't have any) and added thyme to the mix as well. Otherwise, same recipe. We had it with carrot and broccoli quinoa with garlic salt and pepper, and some clementine slices. Kinda all the same color, now that I look at it, but so it goes. Kids gobbled it up, so that's all that matters. I ended up liking the quinoa and salmon together in one bite, actually. Nice mix of flavors. Oh, and squeezed more lemon slices over the whole plate, both fish and quinoa. So, that's it. Anyway, give it a whirl! You don't really get your crockpot dirty either, 'cause you're just steaming it in a homemade tin foil package, no water in the pot or anything.
Crockpot Lemon or Lime Butter Salmon
What you need:
2 salmon fillets
1 T. butter, melted
1/2 T. lemon or lime juice, or both
1/4 tsp. thyme
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. dried minced parsley
2 cloves minced garlic
How you make it:
Spread foil onto the countertop, and put salmon directly in the middle. Melt butter then stir in lemon/lime juice, thyme, pepper, garlic and parsley. Brush mixture all over fish. Fold foil over and crimp sides to make a packet. Put the packet into the bottom of an empty crockpot. Cover and cook on high for 1.5 to 2 hours. It is finished when it flakes easily with a fork.
Regarding the quinoa, if you have questions about making it or what the heck it is, leave a comment and I can clarify anything. For this one, I just put in the raw diced veggies into the pot when the quinoa was cooking and seasoned it with garlic salt and pepper.
