Tilapia with Garlic Cream Sauce and Asparagus – easy seafood dish in the slow cooker

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Miracle Whip or mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons Minced Garlic
  • 1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 4-6 Tablespoons Lemon juice
  • 4-6 Tilapia Filets, thawed or frozen
  • 1 Bundle of Asparagus
  • Parsley Flakes
  • Cooked Rice

Directions

  1. Step One

    Mix first 4 ingredients together in a bowl.

  2. Step Two

    You will need a piece of foil per filet.

  3. Step Three

    Divide the asparagus out into equal amounts per fish.

  4. Step Four

    Dollop a spoon full of cream sauce onto your foil packet and place a fish filet on top.

  5. Step Five

    Top filet with the divided asparagus.

  6. Step Six

    Fold the sides of the foil over the fish and then fold the ends of the foil to form a packet.

  7. Step Seven

    Your fish and asparagus should be completely wrapped up in the foil.

  8. Step Eight

    Repeat the process until the fish filets and asparagus are all wrapped in individual foil packets.

  9. Step Nine

    Place packets in the slow cooker (it’s okay if they are stacked on top of each other).

  10. Step Ten

    Cover and cook on HIGH for 2 hours if fish is thawed or cook on HIGH for 3 hours if fish is frozen.

    This was pretty good, not amazing. I used frozen talapia filets, the minced and jarred garlic, and forgot the parsley, though. :) I used 5 tablespoons lemon juice, but I think less would have been better. The sauce was very runny. But the fish and asparagus were cooked perfectly and it was super easy! It was still good the next day leftover, too.

    Question ??
    Is the parmesan cheese shredded, or like the kind you sprinkle on Spaghetti ?? Thank you :)

    Angelica, You would need to cook it longer. I think it is worth a try.

  4. Angelica

    Would this work well with chicken instead of fish?

    Yay and stinkin’, Wendy! I doubt it cracked because of lack of moisture, though. We’ve made this along with others recipes w/o moisture and never had a cracked crock as a result. Call the manufacturer…sounds faulty to me!

  6. WENDY

    This tasted awesome and was so easy…downfall …my Crock Pot cracked because the lack of moisture :( So bummed!

    My best girlfriend introduced me to this recipe and it is such a hit with my family. My daughter who is 16 even likes it and it is a great way to get her to eat a vegetable. We tried it with broccoli (aspagus still the fave) and found that it was undercooked. We next tried steaming the broccoli til it was about half cooked, then added it to the packets and cooked at regular time. It is trickier. I would love to see more fish recipes!!! Thanks for all the great recipe ideas.

    Fat free mayo would work well for this recipe.

  9. Jenny

    Is it okay to use fat free mayo, or does it have to be the regular kind?

  10. Jenny

    I’m also curious about doing this with salmon instead of tilapia. Has anyone tried it?

    I’m assuming if your hubby isn’t a fan of mayo then he’ll probably wouldn’t go for Miracle Whip? Idk, girl, I’m not a mayo fan so I use MW and I love this recipe. You could always try to sneak it in! Sorry I wasn’t much help :/ I’ll think about it…

  12. Jennifer

    Wondering if I could use something other than Mayo? My husband really dislikes it!! Thanks!

    Hi there, I just registered, and browsing thru the recipes. I’m anxious to try some, this looks delicious. So does the Taquito Enchilada Casserole and the S’more Cake that I watched you make on the video. So many to choose from!!! Thanks!!

    Not really, Donna. First off, I don’t think you could bake your fish and asparagus together because the asparagus will need to cook quite a bit longer. You could prepare the fish in the same way (not in individual foil packets, though), put all your pieces on a foil-lined cookie sheet, and broil about 3 minutes on each side or until the fish flakes. It will work in a time crunch, but if you’re able to plan ahead a few hours it would be much easier in the slow cooker. I mean, we are the Crockin’ Girls!!!! Hope this has helped you…

  16. Donna

    Would you do this recipe the same way in the oven if you needed to cook about 8-10 pieces? What temp? How long?

  17. Ashley

    This was fabulous and is now one of my familes favorite. I use asparagus for me and add broccoli for my husband since he isnt a fan of asparagus. It always turns out great

    This was a very tasty (and easy!) recipe. I should have used talapia, because I used Hake which was too fishy for me. I will be more careful about using only talapia next time. I really like the creamy sauce, and the cooking technique is brilliant. My only complaint is that I used a frozen fish filet, and my asparagus turned out too soft for my taste. I think the asparagus would have been better if my fish was thawed. Next time, if I have to use a frozen filet I will add the asparagus later so that it stays crisp.

    Colleen, I think you would be able to use broccoli spears or broccolini very easily. You may be able to use fresh green beans or sugar snap peas. You would need something pretty firm like asparagus.

    Going to make this tomorrow night . I have a question.. Can we use something else instead of Asparagus ? don’t like it at all UGH!!!

    Hey Stacie, just saw your comment…sorry! I haven’t ever frozen the tilapia after crockin’ it, but I have wrapped it in foil, and we ate the leftovers a couple days later. Tasted great!!! Happy Crockin’!

  22. Stacie

    Does anyone know how this holds up as a leftover? Can you freeze? I’m going to make it for my hubby and me tonight, but I was just wondering if I should only make enough for us to eat tonight. Thanks!

  23. Erin

    This recipe was aboslutely delicious! The flavor was amazing. It is a nice healthy meal and much better than frying the fish up in butter.
