This smoky, bacon-infused glazed salmon adds loads of extra flavor with very little extra work, making it a perfectly yummy weeknight meal.

Ingredients

  • 4 center-cut salmon fillets, skin removed (5 to 6 ounces each)
  • 2 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 teaspoons bacon fat
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F, line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and coat with nonstick spray.
  • Arrange the salmon fillets on the prepared pan and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, thoroughly combine the bacon fat, garlic, ketchup, brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of the smoked paprika, salt and a few grinds of black pepper. Taste and add more smoked paprika if desired.
  • Divide the glaze evenly over the salmon fillets and roast for 8 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle the crumbled bacon over the fillets. Return the salmon to the oven until it’s cooked to medium doneness, 1 to 3 minutes longer. Serve immediately.
