Ingredients

Oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)

Breadcrumbs

45 g, (¾ cup) fresh

Flaked almonds

2 tbs

Fresh chives

2 tbs, finely chopped

Olive oil

500 g, (4x125g)

Kale

2 cup(s), (1 bunch), stems removed, leaves shredded

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Lightly spray a baking tray with oil.
  2. Combine the breadcrumbs, almonds, chives, 3 tsp oil and half the juice in a medium bowl. Place the salmon, on prepared tray. Season with salt and pepper. Top the salmon with the breadcrumb mixture, pressing down gently. Bake the salmon for 12-15 minutes or until cooked to your liking.
