Can I cook fish in a crock-pot?

We've started using the crock pot (yay beans). We love fish, but can't figure out how'd we cook it in a crock pot without it being mushy. Do you pre-cook it?

    I packed the cookbook away but yes you can cook fish in the crockpot. I think its crockpot.com.

    I've cooked chowder. It would seem to me that it would work best to cook a soup or stew because the liquid will cook the fish and keep it from burning.

    I've only done corn and crab chowder, too. (I know, not really fish, but still seafood.)

    @Mattie~ Hello, this is Chef Heather from Food on the Table. Yes, just as the other users have stated, you can absolutely cook fish/seafood in the crock-pot. Since fish is delicate it is typically stirred into the crock-pot during the last 30 minutes of cooking (unless recipe states otherwise). One of my favorite slow cooker fish recipes is this Slow Cooker Chili Lime Tilapia with Corn http://www.foodonthetable.com/recipes/348283-slow-cooker-chili-lime-tilapia-with-corn also try this Shrimp Chowder (Slow Cooker): http://www.foodonthetable.com/recipes/348292-shrimp-chowder-slow-cooker
