It's a well-known fact that adding bacon to any dish automatically improves the end result. Serve this 5-ingredient dish for dinner and receive rave reviews.
4 salmon fillets (about 6 oz. each), skin removed
Salt and pepper
4 slices bacon (about 4 oz. total)
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cups loosely packed arugula
2 teaspoons lemon juice
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Wrap each fillet with a slice of bacon; secure with a toothpick. Place a large skillet over high heat until very hot, add 1 Tbsp. oil and heat until just smoking. Add salmon; cook until bacon is crisp, about 3 minutes. Carefully turn salmon over and cook 2 minutes longer. Transfer skillet to oven and roast salmon, 2 minutes for medium or 4 for well done.
Toss arugula with juice and 1 Tbsp. oil; season with salt and pepper. Divide among 4 plates. Remove toothpicks from salmon, leaving bacon in place. Place salmon on top of arugula. Serve immediately.
The flavors were great together. My only complaint is the recipes suggest to sear the fish in a pan on high heat. it burnt the bacon on one side. I adjusted the temp and cook time and the other side was better.
