2 halibut fillets
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon dijon
Ground pepper
12 strips of bacon
Brown sugar

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil, and place an ovenproof rack on top, and then set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup maple syrup, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1 tablespoon dijon, and a dash of ground pepper until smooth.

Add the halibut cubes, toss to coat, and marinate for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, arrange bacon pieces on the rack of the prepared baking sheet so they do not overlap. Par-bake in the oven for about 10 minutes, (bacon should still be somewhat pliable).

Remove bacon from the baking sheet onto paper towels and pat dry.

Then re-line baking sheet with new foil, replacing rack back on top. Wrap each halibut cube with a strip of bacon, and secure halibut cubes onto skewers. Then place onto the rack bare halibut side down. (You can toss the marinade at this point.) Sprinkle the skewered wrapped halibut with brown sugar. Bake in preheated oven until the halibut cubes are opaque and the bacon is crisp for about 20 minutes.

Remove from oven once bacon is crispy.

These can be served hot, warm, or at room temperature. Plate to serve.
