We don't eat as much fish in this house as we should, especially oily fish . . . part of the reason for this is it's cost, and another part is that I am not overly fond of strong tasting fish . . . or oily fish. As strange as it may sound, I just am not a lover of "fishy" fish.
I do enjoy a nice piece of salmon once in a while though . . . it's not overly fishy tasting, and . . . when cooked right, it can be downright delicious! I often cooked it when I cooked at the Manor. It was something the Mrs really liked. She was always watching her waistline.
I'm not sure wrapping a healthy fish such as Salmon which is filled with omega fats and all things good for you in bacon is conducive to waist line watching or not. I am only sure that it's mighty tasty . . . kind of like the ultimate in "Surf & Turf!" Bacon makes everything taste better in my opinion, healthy or not!
It helps to keep the fish moist in this instance . . . and adds an extra depth of flavour . . . in addition to the fresh thyme. It's really quite lovely . . . with a squirt of fresh lemon at the end, it went down a real treat. A quick, easy and fairly healthy meal for two, which of course can be easily multiplied. I am thinking it would be even more delicious done on the outdoor grill!
