Bacon Wrapped Steelhead (with other stuff)

I made some eats last night: Bacon Wrapped Steelhead (glazed with a little maple syrup and soy sauce) with Red Pepper Mashed Potatoes (mashed by hand) and oven-roasted broccoli (with garlic). Yea, it was pretty good.

The recipe was actually pretty easy to follow. This recipe was actually for salmon, but steelhead is a nice cheaper alternative. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and make sure there's a rack on the top third and bottom third of the oven. Also, the fish will be needing a broiling ban.

Simply salt and pepper the steelhead, wrap it in bacon and then put it on the broiling pan. This should go into the oven for about 12-15 minutes, depending on fish thickness. Place it on the top third rack. Also make sure the bacon is cooked all the way through and crispy.

The broccoli is to be tossed in a mixture of 3 tablespoons of olive oil and three chopped cloves of garlic. A tablespoon of lemon juice helps too. Salt and pepper to taste, then place it on the bottom third rack for 12-15 minutes.

The mashed potatoes were five peeled Yukon gold potatoes, cooked in boiling salted water for 20 minutes. Drain the potatoes and mash them with 1/2 cup of milk (or cream) and 1/2 cup chicken broth. Mash all night long. Garlic salt, black pepper and red pepper to taste.

Just a note to make: we didn't have a broiling pan and our oven is strange (doesn't keep an even heat throughout). So, I had to put the fish in the microwave after the oven for about 3 minutes to make sure it was cooked all the way through. This made the once crispy bacon less crispy, but still bacon-y.
