Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 6 leeks (white and light green parts only), sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 4 salmon fillets (about 6 oz/175 g each)
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine

Method

In large skillet, melt butter over medium heat; spoon 1 tbsp (15 mL) into small bowl. Set aside.

Fry leeks and half each of the salt and pepper in remaining butter, stirring often, until softened, about 8 minutes. Scrape all but 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the leeks into slow cooker.

Place salmon on leeks in slow cooker; brush with reserved butter. Sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper and reserved leeks. Drizzle with wine.

Cover and cook on low until salmon flakes easily when tested, about 1 to 1-1/2 hours.
