Slow-cooked Salmon for the Week

In a wide and low slow cooker, add half a cup of water, a few drops of extra virgin olive oil (EVOL), some shakes of salf and pepper, and two cloves of chopped garlic.

I cook it for the week to use on salads, sandwiches, as the center of attention for low-carb or no-carb meals, and so on. --Frances Ohanenye maintains this unusual site.
