I love salmon! It is one of my favorite things to eat, especially when it’s not only delicious but also wrapped in bacon. When I first heard about this recipe I was skeptical, but after trying it for myself I realized that the combination of the two ingredients is absolutely amazing. The saltiness from the bacon complements the richness of the fish beautifully and creates an unforgettable flavor. If you’ve never tried anything like this before then now is your chance because this recipe will surely become a new favorite!
Blog post intro paragraph:
Salmon has always been one of my favorites due to its high nutrient content and distinct taste. However, it can be difficult to cook without making a mess or drying out all of that fantastic flavor.
prep: 5 mins cook: 25 mins total: 30 mins Servings: 4 Yield: 4 salmon filets
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon garlic powder
4 (4 ounce) skin-on salmon fillets
½ pound bacon, cut in half
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet liberally with olive oil.
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.
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.
