This dish is so easy to make (literally 10 minutes), presents beautifully, and tastes delicious. I can't take credit for this recipe. I actually learned it from my husband's mom, who used to make this for her family all the time. I recently brought it to a potluck and it was a huge hit.
I used Wild Alaskan Sockeye salmon, which naturally has a beautiful red hue and also tastes incredible. The bacon also adds a nice smokey flavor to the dish. Moreover, this not-so-secret cooking method keeps the fish nice and juicy (not dry!!).
1 piece of salmon filet
raw bacon (3-5 strips - enough to cover the fish)
scallions (~2 stalks)
salt & pepper
Remove most of the fat from the bacon and cut up the bacon meat into small strips approximately the width of the fish (around 10-15 cm by ½ cm).
Cut the scallions into similar sized "strips."
Lightly sprinkle salt and garlic powder on both sides of the fish. Lay the scallions and bacon across the fish, covering the entire fish.
Cover and microwave for 4 minutes (if the fish is already defrosted) or 6 minutes (if the fish is frozen).
