17 Slow-Cooker Seafood Recipes for When You’re Sick of Chili

17 Slow-Cooker Seafood Recipes for When You’re Sick of Chili

StyleCaster | Christine Byrne

I know, I know: Slow-cooker seafood recipes aren’t the most intuitive thing. When you think of slow-cookers, you probably think of tough cuts of meat (and maybe big pools of melted cheese), but not delicate fish fillets. The thing is, though, is that it’s possible to use a lower setting on your slow-cooker to cook things more gently, as is usually appropriate with seafood.

Many of the slow-cooker seafood recipes below are soups or stews, which makes sense given the cooking method. But, there are also a few that call for cooking straight-up fillets in the slow-cooker, which is fun and really versatile.

If you’re a fan of shrimp, there’s gumbo, a shrimp boil, and even shrimp and grits. If you’re more into salmon, there are a few recipes that rival baked salmon. If you’re more into white fish, there are plenty of curries and stews that use that, too. No matter which of the slow-cooker seafood recipes you choose, you’re bound to find a new recipe to add to your regular rotation.
