Slow Cooked Snapper with Fennel and Garlic Cream
Super easy meals are becoming more of a thing for me as I get older. I used to have the energy to hunt for herbs from the southern sunny slopes of the alps but all that has changed during covid. This recipe first appeared in our Go Slower ebook...suitably named for me these days! It was one of the favourites from the project and we think you will agree.
It is quite fast for a slow cooker recipe, so don't set and forget for too long. The cooking time can vary based on the thickness of the fish fillets you use. Bulk up and do more if you need to, but they should all be in a single layer. Enjoy going slower.
