Ingredients
  • 3/4 pound skinless, boneless salmon fillet
  • 1 avocado, chopped, divided
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 6 cups baby kale
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pickled jalapeño peppers
Method

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a small baking pan with parchment paper. 

Arrange salmon on the pan and bake until just cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool slightly, flake flesh and set aside.

While salmon is baking, mash half of the avocado with lemon juice and 1 tablespoon water in a large bowl until you have a chunky dressing. 

Add kale and toss very well, making sure all leaves are coated.

Divide kale among serving plates. 

Top with flaked salmon and remaining avocado. Sprinkle with jalapeños and serve.

Note: If using leftover cooked salmon, you'll need about 2 cups flaked cooked fish.
