Serving: 4
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 15 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1 kg firm white fillets (I use bassa)
  • 1 large red onion, diced
  • 100 g tomato pesto
  • ¼ cup water
  • 10 grape or cherry tomatoes, halved


  • Line the slow cooker with baking paper. Place the fish on the paper and scatter with onion.
  • Combine the pesto with ¼ cup water and pour the mixture over the fish. Scatter with tomato.
  • Cover, using the tea towel trick, and cook on high for 2 hours or until the fish is cooked through.
  • Transfer carefully to serving plates using an egg flip – the fish will be very fragile.
  • Spoon some of the pesto sauce over the fish and garnish with the tomato.
  • Serve with a fresh salad and fries/wedges

  1. Being a fish lover, I was looking for something new and exciting to do with my fish for dinner the other night and came across this gem! So simple and quick, but it tastes awesome. Will definitely be having this as a regular dinner, just trying different fish with it each time, I used cod this time, and it stayed firm after 2 hours on high.

    Not usually a fish fan but did this in slow cooker. Too easy. Enjoyed it as a lightish lunch with slow cooker potato bake,salad and roll. Definately saving this recipe as they don’t come any easier and tastes good. ?

    This was an easy yummy fish dish, which I halved, as I was only using 2 pieces of fish. The only change I made was a light sprinkling of cheese on top before cooking. My slow cooker cooked the fish in a little over an hour, since they weren’t very thick.
