I never tried fish but I don't see the problem in it if u did something to it to spice it up but that lingering fish smell doesnt sound so great..sounds better from the crock then the microwave ewwww...anyways u can cook anything in a crock but it takes time. The crock pot is a SLOW cooker sounds like u didn't like it taking long to cook. A crock pot is for preparing a meal , walking away and doing what needs to be done u can even leave the house and go to work then when you return home dinner is done. never use crock pot if u want the meal fast u always will be disappointed!
What a coincidence! I'm fixing fish tonight; gonna bake it. I put the filets (crappie! that's all my husband fishes for and the only kind of fish we eat.) in a container with a lid, add a T. of oil or melted butter (I use Crock Pot with Calcium - it's just 1 Weight Watcher point per T. ) and whatever spices I want (my favorite is garlic pepper salt), shake it up and lay the pieces on a cookie sheet; bake at 350* for 25-30 min. I also nuke it sometimes - 3 min. per side. I've steamed it, too, while I cook rice in my cooker/steamer. We love it all these ways. Once or twice a year we'll have a fish fry and, though delicious, it's too many points for us to do it that way very often.
I have never tried cooking fish in the crockpot before, but I will take your advice and not try it at all. I am not really a fish person, but try to get it in for it's health benefits. I guess there are just some things you can't do in a crockpot.
Yesterday I cooked a 3# salmon roast(?) in the crock. It took longer than expected from the recipe instructions and was no better in taste and texture than the microwave. I lined the crock with foil so the clean up was still easy but next time I will just use the foil on the grill or use the microwave. I did not see any posts about fish in our group but if you have any ideas let me know. Thanks, FS
