Preparation

Note: Preheat oven to 375 °F (190 °C). In a skillet over medium-high heat, sauté bacon, onion and garlic. Add pears, wine, maple syrup and savory. Add salt and pepper to taste and let simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add bread to absorb liquid. On a parchment paper covered cookie sheet, set one of the salmon filets. Garnish with pear preparation, then add Blue cheese. Cover with second salmon filet and bake 30 minutes. Cut and serve immediately with rice and vegetables.

Tips: Recipe can be prepared in advance and baked at the last minute. For a milder taste, try with Canadian Mild or Sharp Cheddar or Gouda or slices of Brie.
