I want to try and cook a whole fish in a slow cooker. Here's what I'm thinking:
Start out with red snapper or bass. Have it cleaned, gutted, and scaled. Rinse and season/rub with salt, pepper, and maybe a little lime juice. Make a few cuts on a diagonal. Leave to rest for a few minutes.
Prepare a tomato sauce. Perhaps Veracruzana or something North African with harissa and/or chermoula. Pour the sauce into a slow cooker. Place the fish in the cooker. Maybe add some stock or water to cover about half the fish. Cook on high for 2 hours or so. Every 30 mins, spoon some of the sauce over the fish. Remove. Garnish with chopped cilantro and/or parsley, and a few wedges of lime.
Any thoughts? Cautions? Suggestions? Thank you in advance.
