--2 largish pieces of salmon
--2 tablespoons brown sugar
--1 teaspoon paprika
--1 teaspoon cumin
--1 teaspoon crushed garlic (2 cloves, smashed and chopped)
--1/2 teaspoon oregano
--1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
--1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
--in a medium-sized dish or small pan ( I used a glass pie plate), combine all of your spices with the brown sugar
--spread out a length of foil on the counter for each piece of fish
--put each piece of fish in the center of it's own foil
--rub the top of the salmon with your spice and sugar mixture (it's okay to mound up the spice a bit, and it is fine to only rub the top)
--fold the foil over and crimp up the sides to make a contained packet
--put the foil packets into a dry crockpot
--cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours. You can cook it on low for about 4 hours, but I really think fish is best at the 2 hour mark on high.
Be super careful opening the foil--- the steam will shoot right on out!
--serve with rice or quinoa and some steamed or roasted vegetables.
This had a fantastic taste. It was a bit spicy for the kids, but they each ate some after I scraped off some of the topping.
Adam and I were very happy with the flavor combination, and the salmon had a moist, flaky texture.
Have a happy day!!
Here are a whole bunch more fish recipes if you'd like other options! (we like the Parmesan Tilapia an awful lot.....)
