Scottish Salmon Fillet Wrapped in Bacon

I came across a nice piece of Loch Duart Scottish Salmon and I immediately had the idea of tightly wrapping it in smokey bacon. When it cooks it will still be crisp on the outside yet still be a good medium rare inside, perfect. This salmon will not need any additional seasoning because of the saltiness of the bacon, to cook I simply roll it on all sides while cooking slowly in a non stick pan till brown and crispy, I let it rest for a few minutes before cutting. I made a risotto using fresh English peas from the garden. Only a few ingredients and an hour of my time for dinner tonight.

Note: Loch Duart Salmon is a Scottish farmed salmon that in addition to being sustainable has won many environmental awards because of its aquaculture program, it can be found in better markets around the country.
