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.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

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 !

Giving this 3 stars is generous. I have Salmon twice a week love this fish I have a lot of very good recipes but enjoy checking new ones out. What a way to ruin a beautiful piece of fillet the seasoning is lost and all you have is a bacon grease covered fish mind you anything tastes better with bacon and that s what you really taste...is bacon with a hint of greasy salmon. People move on from this recipe! Read More

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! Read More

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! Read More
