Bacon Wrapped Salmon with Root Vegetables

1 turnip
1 yam
3 purple potatoes
bok choy
wild salmon
3 slices bacon (I use Niman Ranch)
olive oil
salt & pepper

Oven 425. Chop the root vegetables into pretty uniform squares. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt & pepper. Roast until tender, about 20 minutes. Add the bok choy the root vegetable pan (I use my cast iron) and roast until softened, around three minutes. Set the bok choy aside. set the oven to broil. Season the salmon with salt & pepper. Wrap the salmon in three pieces of bacon.  Push the root vegetables to one side of the cast iron, and set the salmon in the pan. Broil for 3-5 minutes on one side, until the bacon is crisp and the veggies brown and roast in some of the bacon’s drippings. Remove the veggies from the pan, then flip the salmon and broil the other side for 3-5 minutes. Once you remove the cast iron from the oven, put the root veggies and bok choy back in the pan so they heat up. You need very little oil and seasoning if you use the bacon’s drippings to cook the veggies, salmon and bok choy. Enjoy!
