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!

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

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….

First, bacon contains a bunch of fat that helps leaner cuts of fish, like salmon, to be insulated from the grill’s 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 adds as it smokes and cooks.

Secondly, besides helping to keep the salmon from sticking to the grill, the bacon adds structure to hold the fillet together.

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

Because of the glaze, a combination of sweet and savory ingredients, honey, gluten-free BBQ sauce, and sweet bourbon whiskey, this easy 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. Everything caramelizes as it cooks on the grill to create a masterpiece of crispness, sweet and savory. It’s 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 wild-caught Alaska Sockeye Salmon fillets about 1-inch thick, but we’ve also done the same thing with salmon steaks. We also removed the skin, deboned them before cooking, and placed them on a foil pan for grilling, helping to keep them 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 for flavor and strips of bacon on top to keep it together, making it super moist.

Ingredients
 
 

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your grill to 325ºF according to manufacturer instructions, including apple or cherry wood for smoking.
  • While the grill is heating, combine the honey and whiskey in a microwave-safe bowl, whisk together, and microwave on medium heat for one minute.
  • Whisk in the BBQ sauce. Coat the salmon on each side using about half of the combined honey, whiskey and BBQ sauce mixture set aside.
  • Drizzle the olive oil in the bottom of a short-sided aluminum foil pan or pie plate. Add a thin layer of the BBQ sauce for the salmon to rest on top.
  • Arrange the coated salmon in the prepared pan and drizzle the remaining honey, whiskey and BBQ sauce mixture on top. Add the bacon strips over the top and season with the pepper.
  • When the grill is up to temperature, add the prepared pan with the salmon to the grill and cook uncovered for approximately 15 minutes.
