As a true dump-it-and-leave-it dish, this slow-cooker salmon is a weeknight-dinner go-to. The lime and scallion flavors will soak into the salmon, leaving it with a light Asian flavor. Be sure to spray the foil with cooking spray before adding food to the slow cooker to ensure that nothing sticks to it.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Line a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker with aluminum foil, allowing 2 to 3 inches to extend over 2 opposite sides; coat the foil with cooking spray.

  • Layer the lime slices and scallions in the slow cooker; top with the salmon, skin side down. Stir together the honey, water, miso, soy sauce, and black pepper in a small bowl; spread 1/4 cup of the miso mixture over the salmon. Cover and cook on HIGH until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 2 hours. Using the foil as handles, transfer the salmon to a serving plate. Discard the foil. Drizzle the remaining miso mixture over the salmon, and sprinkle with the chives and sesame seeds.
