Orange Poached Salmon and Kale (all in one pan!)

Orange Poached Salmon and Kale (all in one pan!)

I know I know, I’ve been posting more food than fitness lately – sorry, I’m on a bit of a cooking and baking fix these days! Not that I haven’t been working out – in fact tomorrow I will share with you the workout that has my glutes and hips in agony tonight!

But for now, let me share my glorious love for salmon and kale!! I’m telling you this is the best combination ever, and with orange… well – you’ll feel like healthy culinary genius!

– 2 fresh salmon filets
– 1 mandarin orange
– 2 tbsp. gluten free flour
– 1/2 cup + 1/4 cup organic veggie stock
– pepper & parsley flakes
– 1 bunch kale – chopped into small bite sized pieces
– 2 tsp chopped garlic

Smash the mandarin orange and put it in a wok or large frying pan with 1/2 cup veggie broth, and turn on med-high. Place salmon in the pan and poach for 5 minutes, then flip – sprinkle with pepper and parsley – and poach 4-5 min more. Remove from pan (leave the juice), place on a plate and cover with foil.

In the same pan, add the garlic and kale and let sauté.

Meanwhile, combine the GF flour with the extra 1/2 cup veggie broth and whisk until smooth.

When the kale is ready (about 3-5 mins), remove from pan and place next to your resting salmon – recover with foil.

Back in the pan, add the flour mixture and cook until it is somewhat a solid sauce.

Serve 1 salmon per person – topped with your lovely sauce, divide up the kale and voila! you are a culinary genius.
