"You are really going to love this exciting and vibrant new way to use salmon. It's dressed up with an easy and summery relish. Did I mention there will be bacon? Oh, yeah."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This is a game changer for salmon! So amazing!! The only thing I did was drain some of the bacon grease before adding the vegetables. Otherwise this recipe is perfect!
Absolutely fabulous. To save the fat, I didn't cook the vegetables in the bacon grease. I oven baked my bacon, patted it dry with paper towels and then diced/crumbled it. I then put the bacon in a saute pan with the veggies and a TINY bit of olive oil. I added the cayenne pepper to taste and I bet I ended up with more like 1/4 tsp. of cayenne (and it was not too spicy). Corn is not yet in season, so I used one can of shoepeg white corn (niblets) and the ratio to the rest of the relish was perfect. We grilled a 2-1/2 pound filet of salmon and this was just enough relish for that size. For a larger piece of salmon, I would have to double the relish. Everyone loved it!
Aaaaaaaahmazing! My husband barely came up for air while eating this dish. Didn't have rice vinegar on hand so I substituted apple cider vinegar. Still yummy!
This is an easy 5 star recipe. The corn relish makes an excellent side dish if you have any left over.
Delicious! The combination of sweet corn and salty bacon really complemented the salmon nicely.
Amazing flavor. I used sea bass and did it as a spinach seafood salad. Big hit at home and then made it for my staff at work. Thanks Chef John.
Salmon with a hearty, one-dish flavor. Would make again. Easy to make.
This was super good. I cooked it on the grill using a cedar plank. I made a big batch of the fried corn with bacon and it was amazingly good.
