Grilled Salmon with Bacon & Honey-Bourbon BBQ Glaze

Just when you thought Grilled Salmon couldn’t get any better.

Hey GRILL-MASTERS… This recipe for Salmon with Bacon & Honey-Bourbon BBQ Glaze cooked on the grill will seal in that title of Grill HERO you’ve wished for.  There’s no need for trying to decide – Bacon or Salmon tonight?  This time you’re grillin’ both!

Don’t raise your eyebrows. In this yummy salmon recipe, bacon says goodbye to the idea that it might have ever been a Fad. H-E-L-L-O solid culinary technique….

Here’s why bacon is such a good combo for this recipe.

First, bacon contains a bunch of fat, that helps leaner cuts of fish, like salmon, to be insulated from the grills intense heat as it cooks and bastes. While the oil renders out of the pork, the fish is flavored and seasoned from the salt and additional flavors that bacon is adding as it smokes and cooks. Secondly, besides helping to keep the salmon from sticking to the grill, the bacon lends added structure to hold the fillet together.

I knew you’d see the absolute brilliance in this method.

The best news is that because of the glaze, a combination of sweet and savory ingredients; honey, gluten-free BBQ sauce, and sweet bourbon whiskey, this easy, no-fuss main course has a way of convincing just about anyone that you are indeed a Grill-HERO without too much work on your part.

Each ingredient unites forming an amazing gooey glaze that coats the bacon covered salmon, caramelizing on the grill to create a masterpiece of crispness, sweet and savory. A combination that keeps the salmon moist while elevating it in the OMG taste arena.

Grilled Salmon with Bacon BBQ Honey-Bourbon Glaze
It’s hard to believe that grilling the salmon for a quick 15 minutes and using only a handful of ingredients can develop into a recipe that sets it apart from all the others.

For this salmon post, we’ve used salmon fillets about 1-inch thick, but we’ve also done the same thing with salmon steaks. We also removed the skin and deboned them before cooking, and place them on a foil pan for grilling, additionally helping to keep the salmon flaky and moist.

I know you’ll love how easy this grilled salmon is to prepare — made with simple ingredients that give it just the right amount of smokiness to give it flavor, and strips of bacon on top to keep it together, making it super moist.
