I didn't think any of this could be done in a crock pot--caramelized onions or salmon. The ingredients are perfect. My husband made this (he NEVER cooks)--the results were absolutely stunning. He used fresh carrots and a basil infused olive oil, the only variations on this amazing recipe. Thank you so much for sharing!!
