salmon with kale mashed potatoes

it’s silly to make mashed potatoes the week of thanksgiving, isn’t it? well not when you live with jason cassidy [insert jason rolling his eyes at me and his entire family here]. the norwegian salmon at the grocery store looked too good to be able to walk past, and then i stumbled upon a unique mashed potato recipe. and dinner was born.

makes 4 servings

for potatoes, adapted from edible perspective:

  • 20 small fingerling potatoes, peeled
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 cups kale, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • parmesan cheese, as garnish

boil the potatoes for 10-15 minutes, until soft. in a large bowl or mixer, mash together the potatoes with 1 tablespoon butter, vinegar, and salt. add in milk. in a medium pan, melt butter and saute garlic and kale until wilted. stir kale into potato mixture. add vinegar, salt, and pepper to taste. serve with a little parmesan cheese as garnish.

for salmon:

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 salmon filets, deboned
  • salt and pepper

preheat oven to 400. melt butter in small pan or microwave. place salmon fillets on baking dish and rub with butter. season with salt and pepper. bake for 15-20 minutes.
