Salmon and bacon are made for each other. A really easy way to cook them together is to put fresh basil leaves on top of a salmon fillet, cover with bacon strips and lots of freshly cracked black pepper, and cook in a hot (preheated) broiler. The salmon comes out moist and perfumed with basil and the flavors of the bacon. As perfect as that is, this dish, which adds basil mashed potatoes and red onion sauce, is my new favorite.
