Lunch / Dinner
Sweet, salty, and tangy, this intensely flavored bacon dressing is the perfect sauce to complement salmon’s unique flavor.
Preheat broiler to high with rack 6 inches from element. Coat a broiler pan with nonstick spray.
Cook bacon in a sauté pan until crisp. Transfer bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate. Reserve 2 Tbsp. drippings in pan.
Sauté shallots in drippings over medium heat until softened, 2–3 minutes.
Deglaze pan with vinegar, scraping up any brown bits. Add bacon, maple syrup, thyme, and 1 tsp. salt.
Arrange salmon on prepared broiler pan. Broil salmon until it flakes easily when tested with a fork, 6–8 minutes. Spoon bacon dressing over salmon.
Deglazing the pan helps loosen the flavorful bits stuck to the bottom so they’re easy to scrape up.
Use a fork to gently test the doneness of the salmon. It’s done when the flesh flakes easily.
