  1. Think I’m going to try this tonight it looks so yummy. I’ll tweak it a bit for my tastes, since I don’t like dill. I’ll add quinoa with broth to the package for a ready made side and cilantro for a fresh addition. Mmmmm…tummy growling.

  2. I’m not a huge fan of fish. Any of that “fishy” taste and I’m done. While I sometimes have luck with Tilapia, I’ve recently found Flounder and an unusual kind called Swai that are even more mild and pretty consistently so.Just wanted to add this note in case someone would like to try this recipe (I plan to), but don’t like a strong flavored fish.

  3. I’m really “green” when it involves
    Anything in the cooking department !! I
    Know this is probably a
    Really dumb question,
    But when u gotta
    Know, u gotta
    Know….. Are u actually cooking these packets in the slow
    Cooker with them
    Still
    Wrapped
    Up
    In foil? I’ve never cooked
    Anything in my slow cOoker in foil! Just want to be sure I’m reading that correctly before I have a fire started or
    Something crazy!!! Thanks

    1. You are not crazy and that is a good question! Yes, cook them in the foil packets. Unlike the microwave, the slow cooker doesn’t catch fire with foil. 🙂 It is amazing how well it works! Feel free to ask questions any time.

  4. I thought refreezing fish was a no-no.Also, if you don’t want to cook in foil, can you wrap it in parchment paper then foil? I do that with my baked potatoes and it works great.

    1. J, you can keep the fish frozen, add the toppings, and then re-freeze. And the parchment and foil together should work great!

    1. Are you asking about refreezing after the fish has been cooked? Just wanted to double check what you were asking before I answered.

  5. No I was confused, 🙁
    My new question is after freezing fish with veggie’s, can you cook them from frozen or do they have to be thawed? Thxs!!

    1. Nancy, one of our staffers does cook this recipe from frozen with great success. Kelly says since the fish is so thin it works well. Just add about 3 minutes on to the cook time and keep checking it to see if it’s ready.
