Skillet Bacon Jam Review



Skillet Street FOod


I was recently given a sample of Skillet Bacon Jam to try out and review. I love the flavor of bacon in some foods, however cooking with bacon frequently makes the food greasy. If you want the flavor of bacon without the fat and grease then this is for you,


Here is a description from Skillet:

We make this bacon spread condiment called bacon jam..you say what?.. that’s right, we use niman ranch bacon and render it down along with onions, balsamic and other spices. It cooks for several hours until it is a perfect blend of smoky, tangy, savory and slightly sweet….basically spreadable bacony goodness!  USDA approved.


Spreadable bacony goodness is an accurate description. Upon opening the container, it doesn't look too appetizing, but don't let that deter you. The aroma is like freshly cooked bacon and the taste is good, however a bit strong for me, but my husband didn't agree. The recipe below is from Skillet's recipe page with a "Lori Twist." I also equaled the bacon to mayo ratio and added garlic, one of my "go to" ingredients. 

Pink Salmon with Skillet Bacon Jam and Corn Flake Crust

This is a taste pleasing combination of flavors and textures that both children and adults like and is very easy to prepare. Rather then corn flakes, I used Honey Nut Clusters for it's sweet taste to compliment the bacon flavor.  It’s perfect in this recipe because it keeps the steaks moist and if you use fillets, they're thin enough to offer a good crunchy topping to salmon ratio.

Ingredients

1/2 cup crushed Honey Oat Cluster flakes
4 tablespoons Skillet Bacon Jam
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 - 4 to 5 ounce pink salmon steaks
2 cloves sliced fresh garlic
Olive Oil

Instructions

As a visual when chopping the pecans and crushing the flakes, keep them the size of a corn kernel.




In a small bowl, mix the Skillet Bacon Jam and the mayonnaise. 

Place the salmon, skin side down (if using fillets) in a casserole dish with the olive oil and sliced garlic on the bottom. 




Spread the top of the steaks/fillets evenly with the jam mixture then sprinkle and pat the honey nut clusters on top.

 





Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until just cooked and serve immediately. Serves 2.


This was delicious! I paired it with corn and couscous for dinner. I loved the fact that there was no messy bacon grease to clean up and that the combination of bacon, salmon and the sweetness of the cereal was unique and tasty. Not only was this a fast and easy recipe, but it was so very good. I can't wait to use it again.
