During the fishing season for trout and salmon when I get a good size fish for something different; I like to stuff them with wild rice stuffing, cover the fish with bacon, and then bake it and serve it with a fresh salad. The whole family enjoys it. So I thought we might also enjoy this Bacon and Maple Glazed Salmon Recipe.
I have used maple smoked bacon before and it’s really good, so when I saw this Bacon and Maple Glazed Salmon Recipe, covering the salmon with bacon, and then using a Maple syrup glaze; I thought it sounded really good. No disappointment here, the bacon, maple syrup, and salmon went well together. This is a simple recipe with very little prep or cooking time you can have fish on the table in less than an hour. I prepared this Maple Glazed Salmon Recipe as written-makes 4.
1 pound salmon fillets (package of 4 pieces)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 pound bacon (cut in half)
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons less sodium soy sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375F.
1. Line a shallow baking pan with aluminum foil; lay the salmon fillets on it. Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
2. Lay the bacon slices over the fillets.
3. Bake using the center rack of the oven for 15-20 minutes or until salmon flakes with a fork and is done. (While the salmon is cooking mix together the soy sauce and maple syrup-bring to a boil and set aside)
4. Remove the salmon from the oven and glaze with the maple syrup mixture using a brush. Return the salmon to the oven and set on broil until bacon is crisp. (This only takes a minute or two so be sure to watch it)
