  • 1 Whole Side of Salmon
  • 8-10 Navel Oranges sliced
  • Chopped Parsley for garnish
Bacon Pecan Crust:
  • 1.5 cups Pecans roughly chopped
  • ¾ cup Cooked Bacon chopped
  • 1 tbsp Bourbon Prime
Bourbon Glaze:
  • 3 oz Bourbon
  • ½ cup Soy Sauce
  • 2.5 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1.5 tbsp Molasses
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire
  • ½ Navel Orange juiced
  1. Preheat a two zone medium heat fire (around 325F).

  2. Add a cast iron skillet over the high heat side of the side. Add your bourbon to the skillet and let simmer for 2 minutes. Next, add the rest of the ingredients for the Bourbon Glaze and let simmer over the flames until reduced by half & thickened (about 8-9 minutes). Make sure to stir it often, and pull the skillet off the flames if you see it start to bubble too high. Let it cool, then add it back to the flames and keep stirring. Once the glaze has thickened, pull it off and let cool for 5 minutes.
  3. Add all your sliced oranges to the cool side of the grill to create a “plank” for your salmon to lay on. Place the salmon on top of the oranges and lather it with half of the cooled bourbon glaze. In a bowl, mix together your bacon pecan crust. Thoroughly cover the top of the salmon with the crust. Close your grill lid and cook indirect at 325F for 30 minutes until it reaches 135-145F internal.

  4. About 10 minutes before the salmon is done, drizzle the remaining glaze over the top of the pecan crust and let caramelize. When the salmon is done, pull it off and garnish with chopped parsley. Serve and enjoy!
