"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

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....

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 per...

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!

I made this for dinner tonight. My husband loved it! This is absolutely a keeper! Thank you.
