Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Place parchment paper onto a baking sheet or pan.
step 2
In a large food processor, add Curly Kale (1 bunch), Walnut (3/4 cup), Garlic (1 clove), juice of a Lemon (1), Olive Oil (1/3 cup), and Sea Salt (to taste). Give it a blitz. Taste and add more lemon or sea salt if needed. Set aside while you make the salmon.
step 3
Place Salmon Fillets (4) skin side down on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with Sea Salt (to taste), Ground Black Pepper (to taste), and place Lemon (1) on top.
step 4
Bake for 20-25 minutes to the desired doneness. Halfway through top with pesto.
step 5
Once the desired doneness is reached, top with more pesto and serve right away. I recommend serving this with baked broccoli and cauliflower with a tahini lemon sauce
