Tonight I fired my broiler and made some salmon.

Before I did that I got down my skillet and lightly fried up some bacon, just enough to render the fat and cook it a bit.

Does anyone else out there love Gorgonzola? We do. We do. So I used the creative powers of the brain that God gave me and made this up for dinner.

Joey thought it was good.

I thought it was OK. (Needs chives.)

Ana? Hated it.

Salmon with Bacon and Gorgonzola

from Jenna’s Brain, makes 3-4 servings

  • 1 lb salmon
  • 2 slices bacon
  • 1/4 cup Gorgonzola cheese
  • chives, if you have them
  • salt and pepper
Fry the bacon just enough to render the fat and cook it a bit.  Cut it up into smallish pieces.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and place a wire rack inside.

Salt and pepper the salmon and broil on low for 4 minutes.  Or, until it looks like this:

Flip it over and broil again for 4 minutes.  Then whip it out and crumble the gorgonzola (chives, if you have them) and top with bacon.  Like so:

Broil another two minutes, or until the salmon is 145-155 degrees.  (Whichever you prefer based upon your nervousness of how cooked your fish is.)
