A 1-Pan Wonder: Salmon with Crispy Cabbage and Kale

Not a green salad, but a very quick and simple one-pan salmon, kale, and cabbage dish that is fresh, crisp, and lemony bright.

A brief visit to a scorching hot oven quickly wilts the greens like a sauté and gives the edges a crunchy texture akin to kale chips. A lemony-bright mustard and dill sauce ties it all together, and the salmon cooks through to the point where it is just barely flaky while still being tender.

What’s best? Only a cutting board, knife, quarter-sheet pan, mixing bowl, and whisk need to be washed.

NOTES Request that your fishmonger remove the salmon skin if you don’t want to eat it. Cook it on a half-sheet pan and double the recipe if you want to serve 4.

Ingredients for a one-pan salmon dinner recipe
Lacinato kale leaves cut into thin slices, 1/2 bunch, rough stems removed (approximately 2 1/2 cups)
1/4 head of cored and thinly sliced Savoy cabbage (about 2 cups)
split into 3 tablespoons of olive oil
Halal salt
2 fillets of salmon (4 to 6 ounces each)
1 tablespoon of juice and 1/2 teaspoon of lemon zest
2 teaspoons freshly chopped dill
a half-teaspoon of Dijon mustard

Set the oven to 450°F.
Toss kale and cabbage with 1 tablespoon oil, spread out in a uniform layer, season with salt, and bake for 6 minutes on a quarter-sheet pan. Add the fish on the baking sheet after seasoning with salt. Bake for 8 to 9 minutes, or until fish is well done.

While that is happening, combine the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, dill, lemon zest and juice, and mustard. Salt is used to flavor.

Before serving, dress the veggies and fish.
