A delicious and nutritious fish recipe. The bacon, tomato and lemon enhance the overall flavour without over-powering the taste of the salmon. This meal is very low carbohydrate with an excellent mixture of protein and important dietary fats.
Baked Salmon with Bacon and Tomato
- 220 g Bacon (cut into small pieces)
- 100 g Butter
- 1000 g Salmon (with skin)
- 200 g Cherry tomatoes (cut in half)
- 230 mls White wine
- 1 Lemon (juiced and zested)
- 1 handful Basil (Optional)
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C
Melt the butter in a large pan and fry the bacon until it begins to crisp
Add the tomatoes and lemon zest. Increase the heat.
Add the wine and lemon juice and let it reduce by about half
If you like it, add the Basil and stir while reducing the heat.
Put the fish in a well-greased oven dish and spoon the mixture over it.
Cook in the oven for about 20 minutes. Check if it is cooked by placing a fork in the thickest part of the fillet; it should flake easily but still be moist.
