I whipped this up the other day when I was working from home and then again today for lunch. It literally takes 15 minutes and it’s so flavorful and nutritious! Nutrition Data gives it 5 our of 5 stars for Optimal Health (I love it when that happens!) and says the recipe is a good source of Dietary Fiber, Protein, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Magnesium, Potassium, Manganese and Selenium, and a very good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin K. That great but all I know is it tastes YUMMY! :)
The recipe is for 1 serving but you can easily double, triple or whatever for your situation. As you can see I made it only for me. Between the kid hating fish (I think it’s a texture thing) and the husband not into the greens, I didn’t even bother presenting this as a family dinner. Although I hope to maybe one day get them there. In the meantime I’ll hide the kale in family favorites like stuffed peppers. ;)
Here’s what I did.
- 1 tsp (5g) sesame oil
- 1 thick slice of a sweet onion chopped
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 1 cup kale cleaned and ripped into chunks
- about 1/2 inch chunk of fresh ginger root (can replace with about 1/4 tsp ground ginger)
- 1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 cup water
- about 1 tbsp wasabi powder
- 1 4 oz salmon fillet
Heat the sesame oil in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Sauté the onion and garlic until just turning brown. Add the kale right on top and grate the ginger root on top of the kale. Add the 1/4 of water and tsp of soy sauce. Mix everything together and cover. Keep an eye on it as soon as the water looks like it all evaporated (about 1-2 minutes) remove the kale from the skillet. If you like your kale more cooked more simple add additional water and cover until desired doneness is reached. Then remove.
Spray the same skillet with a bit of non-stick spray and return to the medium-high. Sprinkle both sides of the salmon fillet with the wasabi powder and place in the hot skillet. This is what my wasabi powder looked like. . .
Cook about 2-3 minutes a side depending on the thickness of your fillet. A good indicator of when to flip in the whiteness you’ll see on the edge. Shown in the picture.
Once the salmon is done, place on top of the kale and viola! Wasabi Salmon with Asian Kale for One! :)
