I came up with this recipe after pouring through my fridge and freezer to see what I had to cook without leaving the house to go to the store. As it turns out, it’s super easy and super good. Make it tonight!
BACON WRAPPED SALMON WITH HONEY MUSTARD BOURBON GLAZE
6 salmon filets (use wild caught if you can)
6 slices bacon
¼ cup honey
3 teaspoons spicy brown mustard
1 tablespoon bourbon
Salt and pepper
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Make the glaze by mixing together the honey, mustard, and bourbon. If you want, you can leave out the alcohol. Fry the bacon until it’s partially cooked, but not crisp (it needs to be pliable). Put the salmon filets on a cooling rack that’s been placed on top of a cookie sheet; season with salt and pepper. Wrap a slice of bacon around each piece of salmon, securing with toothpicks. Brush each piece generously with the glaze and bake the salmon for 10 minutes, until opaque and easily flaked with a fork.
