Did not change a thing. This salmon was so good and I was afraid to put such expensive fish in the crock pot. Turned out sooooo good. Loved the pesto and lemon.

Was the cooking time of 2 hours enough or needs longer?

Can you use other types of fish for this?

Do I need to use fresh salmon only or will frozen fillets work as well?
