Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Easy Healthy CrockPot Salmon Fillets with Asian Vegetables for Two
(190 calories | *4 WW SmartPoints)
This crock pot salmon fillets with Asian style vegetables is a personal favorite.
I’ve made it 2 or 3 times since beginning this year of slow cooking adventure. I kept waiting to get a better picture before posting it. But that’s not likely to happen because it’s too dark for me to get a photo by the time we eat dinner and there is never enough left when we are finished 🙂
This crock pot salmon fillets and Asian style vegetables is a perfect dinner for two.
The idea comes from a recipe for Crock Pot Salmon Fillets and Green Beans I saw on A Year of Slow Cooking. Steph was right, crock pot salmon fillets turn out moist and flavorful!
Easy Healthy Crock-Pot Salmon Fillets with Asian Vegetables Recipe Notes
It comes together in minutes and takes only 2-3 hours on LOW, which works well for me because I work mostly from home.
This is the kind of dish that is best made on a day when you are around to check on it, so you don’t end up with overcooked salmon.
It’s definitely the kind of recipe that can be varied in lots of ways by mixing up the kinds of fish and vegetable blend you use. I think it would work well with thin boneless, skinless chicken breasts too.
How Many Calories/WW SmartPoints in this Easy Healthy Crock Pot Salmon and Asian Vegetables Recipe?
Each serving has approximately 190 calories and *5 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, *8 SmartPoints, *4 WW Freestyle SmartPoints.
12/7 Update: This recipe proves that patience is a virtue! I love salmon and know that it’s good for me so I try to eat it as often as I can.
When I first began making the recipe it had *5 Weight Watchers PointsPlus. Then in December of 2015 when Weight Watchers introduced SmartPoints with it’s Beyond the Scale Program, the SmartPoints value of this beloved salmon recipe shot up to *8 SmartPoints because of the honey.
I didn’t care. I just kept eating it, just as I had under PointsPlus.
Now with the release of the new WW Freestyle Program, the only thing that has points and needs to be tracked in this recipe is the honey which has *4 Freestyle SmartPoints. The salmon now has *0 SmartPoints!
All I can say is it’s about time 🙂

- Cover and cook on LOW 2 to 3 hours, until the salmon is done to your liking. I'm a huge salmon lover, so like it on the just barely done side and cooked mine about 2-1/2 hours.
