Cooking Steps

  1. Prepare Ingredients

    Prepare Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 425ºF. Rinse all produce. Trim and discard kale stems, then thinly slice leaves crosswise. Halve potatoes lengthwise. Halve lemon. Finely chop dill, discarding stems. Mince garlic. Pat salmon dry with paper towel. 

  2. Roast Potatoes

    Roast Potatoes

    On a baking sheet, toss potatoes with 1 tablespoon olive oil, ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. Arrange cut-side down in a single layer and roast until golden and crisping, about 15 minutes. 

  3. Sauté Kale

    Sauté Kale

    While potatoes roast, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. When oil is shimmering, add garlic and sauté, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add kale, season with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired, and sauté, stirring occasionally, until wilted, 3-4 minutes more. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

  4. Sear Salmon

When oil is shimmering, add salmon skin-side down and sear, pressing down with a spatula, until skin is crisp and brown, 3-4 minutes. Flip, reduce heat to medium, and sear until medium rare, 3-5 minutes more. Divide salmon between serving plates.
