A note about serious food allergies

If you ask us (and you didn't, but we'll tell you anyway), a bacon shallot jam can go on anything. Steak, chicken, veggies, on top of an ice cream sundae… maybe less so that last one. But its sweetness perfectly matches the richness (yet lightness!) of the salmon, making a flavor marriage that's built to last. Bacon shallot jam can go on anything, but it goes perfectly here.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut each potato into eight wedges.

    Peel and halve shallot. Cut into 1/4" dice.

    Pat salmon fillets dry, and season flesh side with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  2. 2

    Roast the Potatoes

    In a mixing bowl, combine potatoes, 1 tsp. olive oil, 1/2 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Add panko and thoroughly mix to combine. Applying slight pressure will help the panko adhere.

    Transfer potatoes to prepared baking sheet and spread into a single layer. Roast in hot oven, 15 minutes.

    Carefully, remove baking sheet from oven and flip potatoes. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil. Roast again until tender and golden brown, 5-7 minutes.

    While potatoes roast, cook salmon.

  3. 3

    Cook the Salmon

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add salmon, skin side up, to hot pan and sear until golden brown and salmon reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side.

    Remove from burner.

    While salmon cooks, make sauce.

  4. 4

    Make the Bacon Shallot Jam

    Place a small pot over medium high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil, shallot, and bacon to hot pot. Stir occasionally until bacon begins to crisp and shallot is tender, 2-4 minutes.

    Add red wine vinegar, 1/4 cup water, sugar, and a pinch of salt. Stir to combine, then bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir often until liquid has almost completely evaporated and is slightly syrupy, 8-10 minutes.

    Remove from burner and stir in butter and a pinch of salt.
