Salmon With Bacon and Balsamic Vinaigrette

We just love Salmon and when we go to Oregon to visit our daughters we always eat as much Salmon as we can. We are inland so fresh Salmon is a real treat for us.  This is a different flavor for Salmon but one that we just love.  Part of this recipe is from our friend Bill, I never ate his Salmon, but his wife Chelli tells me how wonderful it is all the time.  So of course putting my own spin on it, this is our new Salmon recipe.

Salmon With Bacon and Balsamic Vinaigrette
