Salmon Bake in the Slow Cooker

Salmon Bake imageWhen I’m looking for easy, quick preparation, and delicious, I can’t go past Salmon Bake in the Slow Cooker.

As many parents can attest, dinner time is crunch time. Kids are tired and hungry. Cooking at that time can be gruelling, and you can end up either leaving the dinner to burn, or the kids to scream and fight. That is why I love my slow cooker. Throw it all in immediately after breakfast, and it’s ready to serve at dinner time. We all love the salmon bake. Kids included!

Salmon Bake Ingredients (in rough order)

  1. Onion/ leek/ fennel or all three (to cover the base of the slow cooker)
  2. Arborio rice (about 1.5 cups)
  3. Mixed italian herbs (a liberal covering)
  4. Home made chicken stock paste (half a tablespoon – more if you like it salty)
  5. Vegetables to almost fill the slow cooker (I often include broccoli, pumpkin, potato, spinach, whatever is in the fridge)
  6. Tinned salmon (4 tins) with salmon juice
  7. Cashews
  8. Aoli Egg Mayonnaise (275g)
  9. Cashews
  10. Avocado

Hi, I'm Nicky, Mum of 2, and a psychologist (PhD/Masters). I am passionate about helping people to improve their quality of life and believe that healthy eating an important part of that. When we moved out in 2009 we cut out all processed foods, including grains, and gradually reintroduced things to see how we felt. I hadn't felt sick before, but after changing our diet I had more energy, felt less tired, and no longer had the tummy troubles that I previously thought were a normal part of life. Finding time to cook healthy food for 3 meals a day, when it was just Tim and me was one thing. Now we have two little ones, and keeping up a stock of healthy meals and portable snacks is a challenge. I hope to share what I have learned about raising a real-food-family.
