Hi all. I used a crockpot for the first time recently, just to cook vegetables. I was really pleased with the results. The vegetables were much more flavoursome and retained more moisture compared to when I cook them in an oven.
I was thinking about using the crockpot to cook fish. However it seems counter-intuitive to leave fish cooking for that long... I usually cook it in an oven on a medium-high temperature for less than ten minutes.
From a health perspective, which method is better for cooking fish? If it is preferable to slow-cook fish, then for how long should I cook it and at what temperature (high/low)?
Thanks in advance.

Try this in the crockpot and see what happens.
The fish is supposed to disintegrate. You start off chopping it up fine, cook it soft along with the tomatoes, then pur??e the whole works to the consistency of thick gravy. I haven't ever made it myself but I've had it in restaurants. It's very hearty.
I make thick cioppinos with crushed tomatoes in a crockpot, using a lot of sausage and tough razor clams. It takes about 6-8 hours to get the clams tender.
