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.

What if next time you try to crisp up the sides by putting a good quick sear on the fish? That might add some flavor to it.

Otherwise, the only time I have heard of cooked fish in the crock pot is for a chowder or a stew.

I am making myself Strong, Better, Leaner! Just keep it going day by day.

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. emoticon

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
