Sheet Pan Salmon with Crispy Kale and Potatoes
If possible, ask for salmon fillets that are wider and thinner, rather than taller and thicker; they will cook faster and more evenly.
Fresh lemon juice
Plain fat free Greek yogurt
½ tsp(s), or to taste, divided
¼ pinch(es), freshly ground, or to taste, divided
Uncooked Yukon gold potato(es)
12 oz, quartered
1 cup(s), Tuscan variety, ribs and stems removed, leaves torn into large pieces
Crushed red pepper flakes
½ tsp(s), divided
Uncooked skinless wild salmon fillet
12 oz, with or without skin, four 3 oz pieces
2 large clove(s), finely chopped, divided
4 tsp(s), divided
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- Whisk 1 Tbsp lemon juice and a pinch garlic into yogurt; season to taste and set aside.
- Place potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet; toss with 2 tsp oil and season to taste. Roast, tossing occasionally, until potatoes are well-browned and cooked through, 25-30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, toss kale with crushed red pepper, remaining chopped garlic and 1 tsp oil; season to taste and place on prepared pan in an even layer.
- When potatoes are done cooking, remove from oven; place salmon over potatoes on pan in a single layer. Drizzle salmon with remaining tsp oil; sprinkle with salt, black pepper and red pepper. Bake salmon until it begins to brown around edges and is just cooked through, 5–8 minutes (depending on thickness). Put kale in oven at same time as salmon; bake until crispy at edges, 5-8 minutes.
- Serve with reserved yogurt and a fresh squeeze of lemon.
- Serving size: 3 oz salmon, 3/4 c kale, 1/2 c potatoes, 1/4 c yogurt
