1P100W #14 – Secret Weapon

DSC_0003 (1024x638)

After that Buy Two Free One debacle, I found myself having too much bacon strips. What am I talking about? There’s no such thing as too much bacon strips!Β What I mean is that I can use them generously. So I did.

I wrapped one sweet potato in foil. Then I wrapped a couple of lemon juice/salt/pepper marinated pollock fillets with bacon strips and wrapped the whole thing in another foil. Then I whacked them all in the oven for 30 minutes. Then I peeled the skins off the sweet potato because I don’t do sweet potato skin.

And that was dinner. Delicioso!

    • I never heard of this term before! Barding…. wrapping meat with a layer of fat to ensure they remain moist πŸ˜€ …

      I didn’t think of it this way. I thought wrapping with bacon will give the fish some of the smoky flavor when cooking. πŸ˜€

  1. Whenever you use your secret weapon, I notice you tend to bake it. I know, I know…lazy man’s cooking…but I don’t think I can eat it that way..soft, fatty, wobbly and not caramelised…no matter how big a fan I am of bacon! I need it be crisp….oh yeah! πŸ˜€

  2. Great idea! Gotta get some sweet potatoes and try this this weekend when my girl comes back. She loves sweet potatoes and pumpkin. I have a 1 kg bag from my cousin in Oz, still in the freezer.

  3. I know liao secret weapon means bacon.. And yes, I remember the bacon you just bought.. I love sweet potatoes, but if you bake sweet potatoes with bacon, the bacon taste wont cover the sweet lemak-ky potato taste meh? But ala, janji sedap, semua masuk perut.. You got fish, bacon, sweet potatoes, healthy already, so boleh aje..Oops, no vege?

    • I bake the potato and the fish/bacon in 2 separate wraps, after they done only I transfer them together in one plate, so there is no infringing of taste when cooking. πŸ˜‰

      Got, got vege, on the side, but no picture! πŸ˜›

  4. Potato and bacon, macam a weird combination.. But since you said it’s delicious, then who cares if it’s weird, haha xD

  5. When I read the line about too much bacon, my brain shouted how can there be too much bacon! And then the next line you said it too.

    You must be in heaven after eating this meal!
