Bacon-Wrapped Salmon

Recipe by  

"A delicious use of some of my favorite things - bacon and salmon! The salmon stays really moist from the bacon, and the skin helps protect the bottom from cooking prematurely."

  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet liberally with olive oil.
  2. Place the salmon fillets onto the baking sheet skin-side-down. Sprinkle the fillets with garlic powder, dill, salt, and pepper. Lay the bacon strips over the fillets to cover completely. Do not overlap the bacon strips.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the salmon is no longer translucent in the center, 20 to 25 minutes. Turn the oven on to broil and cook until the bacon has crisped, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Cook's Note
  • While baking, you can make your vegetable side at the same time by throwing on some cut-up veggies that you roast right along side the salmon - asparagus, sweet peppers, baby portobellos, onions, and tomatoes, etc. Just toss them with some more olive oil, salt, and pepper, if you wish.

I was skeptical, since it was unrated, but it certainly sounded good! I had a fine filet, almost one pound, and cut it into two. I added the garlic powder, dill, salt and pepper, then covered each one with half-slices of thick-sliced bacon so that it looked like the picture above. Baked at 375 for about 20 - 22 min., then broiled carefully on high, at about 6-inches below the broiler until the bacon was crisp--about 4 - 5 minutes. (Don't ignore it, or let it get away!) The result? Splendid! Best salmon filets I have ever had! These were nice big 8 oz filets with good thick bacon, and were a real treat, worthy of professional offering as a seafood main course !

The way I see it, adding bacon to ANYTHING is a good thing and adding it to salmon is a great thing! This is a wonderful quick and tasty dish. I sliced some potatoes and added them to the pan. In a separate skillet I sauted up some zuchinni, summer squash, tomato, onion, and garlic which made a nice side dish to compliment the fish. Everyone should try this recipe. You won't be disappointed!

Not sure what prompted me to look for a recipe like this, but it was worth it! This was an excellent meal! My husband is DEFINTELY a salmon/fish snob, and he rarely eats it if it's not grilled. Since we had to ditch our grill before moving across the country, I have been trying different methods of cooking fish. I have failed miserably MANY times, and this was my FIRST SUCCESS! We both ranked this 10/10. The salmon stayed moist and flaky, and the bacon with it was great. Unusual, but delicious, flavor combination. Next time I might try cooking it on a broiling pan so the oils/juices can run down, just as an experiment. I'll post an update if it produces anything different. Yum, yum, yum--enjoy!

Fantastic, if I don't say so myself ;)

I normally grill my fish on the BBQ, but today I wanted to try something different and stumbled across this recipe. It's delicious! But that's a given, considering it's topped with bacon! I personally think 20-25 mins is a little long. Instead, I increased the temp to 425 for the first 5 mins, then 400 for another 10 mins and the salmon was perfectly cooked and moist, plus the bacon was just how I like it. No need to broil at the end. I wasn't that hungry, but I ended up eating both pieces I made because it was so good! I didn't even have a chance to take a pic. Next time!

This was pretty good but it was a little bland.

I didn't have the highest quality salmon available, but it still turned out to be delicious.

Salmon patties are still my favorite, but this was an exceptional idea and super yummy!
