Light Summer Meal: Poached Salmon, 5.0 out of 5 based on 1 rating Salmon isn’t something you’d normally cook in a slow cooker. Arguably, you can always poach salmon on a stovetop. However, using a slow cooker has its benefits. At an even, low temperature, the salmon is cooked to perfection – tender, moist and flavourful – and can be enjoyed without any added fat.

You won’t have to worry about the temperature getting too hot, and since poaching salmon in a slow cooker basically entails adding the ingredients and and then leaving it to cook while you do something else, you can easily make this on weeknights or when you have visitors over.

Tip: Poaching is just one of the three ways to cook salmon using a slow cooker.
