Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 celery rib, sliced
  • 1 medium carrot, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 1 fresh rosemary sprig
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 salmon fillets (1-1/4 inches thick and 6 ounces each)
  • Lemon wedges

Directions

  1. In a 3-qt. slow cooker, combine the first 11 ingredients. Cook, covered, on low 45 minutes.
  2. Carefully place fillets in liquid; add additional warm water (120° to 130°) to cover if needed. Cook, covered, just until fish flakes easily with a fork (a thermometer inserted in fish should read at least 145°), 45-55 minutes. Remove fish from cooking liquid. Serve warm or cold with lemon wedges.
