The low, slow heat of a slow cooker is actually perfect for shallow poaching. Rather than submerging the salmon in the poaching liquid, Gina Homolka rests it on a bed of Meyer lemons with parsley, shallots, and white wine so it cooks gently and absorbs all of the delicious flavors of the aromatics.
Tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich—comforting elements on their own—come together in a somewhat unexpected way to make the ultimate comfort meal.
