Salmon Stew Recipe

Lately, I’ve been exhausted by the weekend so I’ve been making crockpot meals. I make enough where we can eat off of it a couple to a few meals. I don’t have to spend all weekend in the kitchen and that makes me happy! Today, I decided to share my weekend crockpot recipe with my readers.  If you have a crockpot recipe that you want to share, please add your link in a comment and I’ll start up a crockpot link up.

Today’s crockpot recipe was inspired by my daughter. She fixed some Salmon Stew not too long ago and I decided to give it a try on this beautiful sunny day here in Georgia. My daughter’s stew was delicious but if you spend as much time in the kitchen that I do then you can imagine how I began to put together a recipe in my mind as I was enjoying hers. She didn’t have a recipe to give me so she told me the ingredients she used and I took it from there. The below recipe is part hers and part mine.

Salmon Stew Recipe


2 cups of frozen whole kernel corn (my daughter used canned but I normally don’t buy canned corn)
2 medium onions
Approximately 6-8 potatoes (I used 6 half large half medium size)
4 cups of 2% milk
2 sticks of real butter (I’m just a real butter kind of gal)
1 large red pepper (any color will do- I just wanted it to look pretty so Abby will eat it)
1 diced tomato (my daughter did not use a tomato but I’m geeked out about adding tomatoes to stews of any sort)
Salmon (I used canned, de-boned)
Seasonings, 2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1 tsp parsley, minced garlic 1/4 tsp or less, 1/4 tsp paprika
(I’m a bit more of a seasoning cook than my daughter so she didn’t use all of the above seasonings)

I put all of the above ingredients in the crockpot and set it on high for 4 hours. This would be absolutely perfect served in bread bowls. I don’t have any on hand but I will next time. Anyhow, any way you serve this, I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine.

What are some of your favorite ways to serve seafood?


  1. My husband loves salmon but we only bake it. Cooking it into a stew is a great idea!

  2. Salmon is my favorite, but I’ve never made it in a stew before! I like to make foil packs of fish or do wood planks. YUM!

  3. I like using a slow cooker too. This looks so colorful and full of flavor. Yum!

  4. What a hearty and delicious meal. I have never cooked with canned salmon. I must give it a try

  5. I’m not usually a seafood kinda gal, but you managed to make a dish that looks pretty yummy!!! Love stews 🙂

  6. Thanks, I didn’t think I would like it in a stew but after some encouragement to try, I really was impressed. I make a salmon loaf that’s pretty good too.

  7. I just mostly grill or saute seafood. I love them with different kinds of veggies.

  8. I have never seen salmon in a stew. What an innovative way to serve it, I love it!

  9. We love salmon but have never made it in a stew. Thanks for introducing us to some new salmon recipes!

  10. I too am exhausted by the weekend – I hear you on that one! This looks delicious. I have lately been thinking of fish stew, was going to try it yesterday but the fish was too thin and flaky! Salmon would work well!

  11. I love using my crock pot to make soups!! This sounds like a delicious salmon recipe!

  12. That looks really good. I eat a lot of Haddock and have never tried Salmon. Will have to try this sometime.

  13. Interesting. I have never had salmon stew. I love salmon and most fish. Not sure if I can eat it in stew though. It took me years to eat fish tacos!

  14. I’m so happy to come across this post. I love salmon and this is a totally different way of cooking things.I love it. I’ll definitely go ahead and give this a try.

  15. Ok, this is a really interesting recipe!! I love salmon and I’ve made it so many different ways…but never something like this!
