  • 2 salmon filets
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, plus more for massaging the kale
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 4 cups lacinato kale, leaves torn into smaller, bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup caesar dressing (we like primal kitchen’s paleo caesar dressing)
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 tbsp chives, chopped
  • 1 tbsp parsley, chopped
  • 1 lemon, juiced

Optional topping: parmesan cheese (for those that can tolerate dairy) or a hard goat cheese

    • In a nonstick skillet, heat the oil and butter over medium high heat (butter gives the salmon a stellar crust). Season each filet with salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and place in the skillet skin-side up. Cook undisturbed for 5 minuets, the flip, cooking for another 4-6 minutes.
    • Meanwhile, massage the kale with olive oil. Blend the dressing with avocado, chives, and parsley, and toss the kale with the dressing.
    • Place the salmon over a bed of kale, pour a little more dressing over each filet, squeeze the lemon over top.
