Introduction: Bacon Wrapped Salmon
It's a simple dish to impress anyone you like, and you can always go for your own sauce!
For me, I'd like something refreshing for a dish full of fat (they're good fat tho), so I also put my homemade lemon green onion sauce for you, but if you want your own sauce--- go for it!
Step 1: Ingredients
For the Salmon wrap You will need:
--1/2 package of bacon
--2 servings of Salmon
For the sauce you will need:
--2 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
--1 bunch of green onion
Step 2: Prepare the Salmon
Clean your Salmon (if it's fresh, pat dry with a paper towel is enough), and cut it in half from the middle.
You can season them with some black pepper but I don't recommend to use salt because the bacon has flavor too.
Put two pieces of salmon together with an opposite arrangement-- The thicker end of the first piece stick with the thinner end of the second piece. Arrange them this way will create a more even slice.
That's the best part: flat your bacon on the bottom, and put your salmon on top of it.
LOOK AT THAT.
Step 3: Wrap the Salmon
Now you want to wrap your salmon with bacon really tight, start with one side.
Heat a little bit oil in the pan just to keep it away from sticky, and use medium heat to pan sear all the four sides of the wrap.
Step 4: Finish the Wrap
After all the sides of the bacon are done, the salmon is almost done as well. But to make sure, use a thermometer and when the inner piece of the salmon reaches 140°F, the fish is done!
Take out the wrap and cool it down a little bit, you can use kitchen towel to dab off the excess grease if you'd like to.
Step 5: Prepare Your Sauce
Use just the green part of the green onion, and cut them into small pieces.
Put the green onion in the blender, zest the lemon first and then squeeze in the lemon juice as well.
Salmon really goes well with acid, and lemon is my favorite choice. By adding the lemon zest, the refreshing and nice flavor of lemon really brings up.
Step 6: Finish Your Sauce
Add the extra virgin olive oil, and season it with salt (and black pepper if you want). Blend everything well and you can always add more olive oil (or even water) till it reaches your desired consistency.
Step 7: Now Enjoy!!!!
Cut your wrap into pieces--- just like Sushi!
Dip in the sauce.... And finish the whole thing!
