Teriyaki salmon is easy to make, and cooking it in the slow cooker means it is guaranteed to turn out tender, moist, and perfectly flaky. For the recipe below, you just need a few simple ingredients and five minutes of prep time. Let the slow cooker do its thing for a couple of hours, and you’re ready to eat. Add steamed rice and a simple green vegetable like steamed broccoli or roasted asparagus, and you’ve got a well-rounded meal.
Salmon can sometimes fall apart once it’s cooked. To make it easier to serve the salmon in nice-looking pieces, you can line the slow cooker with a sling made of parchment paper or aluminum foil. Lift the sling out of the slow cooker, allowing the sauce to run off back into the pot, and then lift the fish gently with a spatula.
