What You Do

  1. Place pre-rinsed, chopped kale, shaved brussel sprouts, and salt into a large bowl. Juice half of the lemon directly into the bowl. Using your hands, gently massage the lemon juice into the kale for one to two minutes. Set this aside.
  2. Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Drizzle the olive oil directly into the skillet.
  3. Add all of the seasonings to a small bowl, and mix well to combine them. If salmon is not already cut into portions, cut it into at least 6 ounce filets. Do not remove the skin just yet.
  4. Season the meat side of the salmon liberally and evenly with the seasoning combination. Pat the seasoning into the salmon using your hands. NO NEED TO SEASON THE SKIN SIDE.
  5. Place the salmon into the pre-heated skillet skin side down. Sear for 8 minutes, then flip it over. Cook it on the "meat" side for an additional 6 minutes. NOTE: thickness of filets may vary. If you like your salmon more rare, adjust cooking time accordingly.
  6. Remove the salmon from the skillet, and set it aside. Once it is cook enough to handle, use your hands or tongs to gently remove the silver skin from the salmon. It should peel away easily.


  1. Using a large bowl or a platter, begin to assemble the salad. Add the kale and shaved brussel sprouts, dried cranberries, and pistachios. Gently fold them together until combined.
  2. Sprinkle the croutons and shaved parmesan over the top of the salad. Next, place the salmon filets directly on top.
  3. Serve with your favorite salad dressing. Enjoy!

Salad dressing can also be combined directly into the salad if desired.
