  • 2 largish pieces of salmon
  • --2 T brown sugar
  • --1 t paprika
  • --1 t cumin

  • --1/2 t oregano

  • --aluminum foil


  1. —in a medium-sized dish or small pan ( I used a glass pie plate), combine all of your spices with the brown sugar

  2. —spread out a length of foil on the counter for each piece of fish

  3. —put each piece of fish in the center of it’s own foil

  4. —rub the top of the salmon with your spice and sugar mixture (it’s okay to mound up the spice a bit, and it is fine to only rub the top)

  5. —fold the foil over and crimp up the sides to make a contained packet

  6. —put the foil packets into a dry crockpot

  7. cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours, or on low for 3-5.
