Slow Cooker Poached Salmon with Lemon Sauce

It's Slow Cooker Month and my friends and I have banded together to present to you recipes using your slow cooker. It is such a time saver for you and your family, and, the meals are delicious too.  I am sharing a recipe for Slow Cooker Poached Salmon that has an incredible lemon sauce on it.

Using the slow cooker with salmon does a couple of things:  1.  it slows down the cooking process so that the meat is tender and 2. the liquids ensure that the meat is juicy and delicious. These reasons alone would be enough for me to use the slow cooker with salmon but there are many other reasons to use the slow cooker.

You can use the leftovers to make an incredible salad or freeze for future meals.  So when you cook a salmon, cook the entire filet. This is also the most inexpensive way to purchase salmon, versus the individually packed portions.  You can refrigerate cooked salmon in airtight containers for up to four days. You can freeze cooked portions by cooking them down completely and then storing them in a vacuum-sealed container or freezer bags.
