  • ½ cup steak seasoning sauce (such as Dale's Steak Seasoning®)

  • ½ cup brown sugar, divided

  • 2 tablespoons bourbon (such as Jim Beam®), or more to taste

  • 3 scallions, chopped

  • 1 (1 1/2-pound) salmon fillet, cut into 2-inch cubes

  • 15 toothpicks, or as needed


  1. Mix steak seasoning sauce, 6 tablespoons brown sugar, bourbon, and scallions together in a large bowl to make marinade.

  2. Toss salmon cubes in marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit in the refrigerator, 4 to 6 hours.

  4. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  5. Grill bacon-wrapped salmon, turning frequently, until bacon begins to crisp, about 5 minutes.
