  • 8 oz kale, chopped (about 8 packed cups)
  • 4 6-oz wild-caught salmon fillets
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard

Pantry staples

  • Ground black pepper and sea salt, to taste
  • Olive oil cooking spray

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. In a large saucepan over high heat, bring 4 cups water to a boil. Add lentils and kale. Cover and simmer over medium-low heat for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove lid and simmer 5 to 10 minutes more or until lentils and kale are tender. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Meanwhile, place salmon fillets on a baking sheet lined with foil and coated with cooking spray. Season salmon with salt and pepper, to taste. Bake for 12 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together honey and mustard. When salmon is ready, remove fillets from oven and coat thoroughly with honey-mustard glaze. Return to oven and bake 10 to 15 minutes more or until cooked through.
  5. Divide lentil mixture among 4 plates. Top each with a salmon fillet and serve immediately.
