“This recipe was demonstrated at the 2010 Pensacola Seafood Festival. It is from Flounder's Chowder House, and the originator is Mark Murphy. Yum, yum, yum! Prep time does not include the time to get your grill ready.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the glaze, combine the juice, brown sugar, bouillon, pepper, bourbon and soy sauce. Bring to a boil and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Turn heat down to a simmer. Thicken to your desired thickness with cornstarch slurry (equal parts cold water mixed with cornstarch -- be careful, it will thicken quickly!).
  2. For the topping, fry the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp. Add peanuts and cook until the peanuts are heated through and hot, about 1 minute.
  3. Grill the salmon over medium-high heat to desired doneness. (I cook 2 minutes, turn 45 degrees and cook 2 minutes more, flip the salmon and cook 2-3 minutes, rotate 45 degrees and cook 2-3 minutes more, until it flakes nicely) Baste with the glaze while you are grilling the salmon.
  4. Finish by topping the salmon with the bacon and peanuts.
