What makes it a good substitute for pork-belly bacon is that it has less fat and more protein. And if you opt for the uncured beef bacon (and you should), you’ll reduce your sodium levels as well.
If you’re not a fan of turkey bacon, though, and you want less fat than that found in pork bacon, you can give duck bacon a try.
Capicola is a delicious cured meat that crisps up nicely and, like prosciutto, can take the place of bacon pretty much anywhere.
Bacon made from fish? Yes, and it tastes like fish. Salty, smokey fish.
