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.

  • 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.

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.
