AIP Bacon-Wrapped Salmon Recipe
This AIP bacon-wrapped salmon recipe is a match made in heaven. It’s a luxurious low-carb date night kind of meal you can make in a jiffy.
The History of Salmon as a Food Source
People have been dining on this delicious fatty fish off the coast of Europe since Palaeolithic times. Native Americans ate a salmon-rich diet, and European settlers also took to eating the fish.
There was a time when salmon was prevalent in both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, but the advent of modern canning and food preservation methods led to overfishing and created scarcity.
Today, the majority of commercial salmon is produced at salmon farms.
What Sets This Salmon Apart
There are a few things I love about this particular autoimmune protocol diet recipe. The delicious smoked bacon adds loads of flavor to the fish. It is unlikely you’ll need extra seasoning, but have some sea salt flakes on the ready just in case it’s not to your liking.
Chopped tarragon also makes this salmon special. If you don’t use it a lot, tarragon is bittersweet, with a distinctive flavor. Some tasters detect hints of licorice and vanilla in the spice.
Use a conservative amount of tarragon if you’ve never had it. If you like it you can always add more.
