Crock Pot Lemon Pepper Salmon for One

crock pot lemon pepper salmon for one

Cooking for one or two? You can enjoy delicious Crock Pot recipes too, without all those leftovers. What I’ve done is adjust several of my recipes that typically feed a family, to work for singles and couples. Crock Pot Lemon Pepper Salmon is such an unexpected slow cooker meal, but I promise you, it will turn out perfectly.  Just remember to use a 2 quart Crock Pot instead of a larger one. Otherwise these cook times will have to be adjusted. (To see the family-size recipe, click here.) Here’s what you need:


1-4 oz. frozen salmon filet, frozen
1/2 c. olive oil
1/4 c. lemon juice
3 tsp. minced garlic
2 Tbsp. Lemon Pepper seasoning (Lawry’s)
2 tsp. salt
Whisk together in a measuring cup. Store remaining marinade in an airtight jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.


1. Lightly grease the bottom of a 2 quart Crock Pot with cooking spray. Place the frozen salmon filet in the Crock Pot.
2. Pour just under 1/4 c. of the marinade over the fish. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours until fish is fork tender.
3. Optional–After cooking, sear the filet in a skillet over high heat for 1-2 minutes on each side, until both sides are lightly browned.
