  • 4 pieces (3 to 4 ounces each) boneless, skinless salmon
  • Olive oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 fig leaves
  • 1/2 pound kale, torn into small pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Drizzle salmon with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Wrap each piece of salmon in a fig leaf and place on a baking sheet. Transfer to oven and bake until cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Set aside and keep warm.

  3. Place olive oil in a spray bottle and spray kale with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Place kale on a baking sheet and transfer to oven. Bake until kale is crispy, about 8 minutes. Divide kale evenly between 4 plates. Unwrap salmon and serve immediately on fig leaves with kale.
