Baked Salmon with Lemon Kale Pasta

Baked Salmon with Lemon Kale Pasta is a light and bright dish that will be ready in just 20 minutes. It's a perfect weeknight dinner that's bursting with flavor.

Ingredients salmon filets • extra virgin olive oil • angel hair pasta • garlic • lemon juice • lemon zest • chopped kale • parmesan cheese • lemon wedges • salt and pepper

Step 1 Preheat the oven to 450°F. Pat the salmon dry with a paper towel. Place, skin side down, on a foil lined baking sheet. Brush the tops and sides with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 2 Bake for 10-12 minutes, then broil for 1-2 more minutes to get the tops a little crispy. The salmon is done when it easily flakes and is opaque inside.

Step 3 Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to package directions. When finished, strain the pasta, reserving ¼ cup of the water.

Step 4 Heat the olive oil in large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the garlic, and cook for about 30 seconds until fragrant. Add the lemon juice, lemon zest, and kale. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the kale begins to wilt.

Step 4 (continued) Add in the cooked pasta and toss until combined. Pour in reserved pasta water, 1 tablespoon at a time, as needed. Finish off with an extra drizzle of olive oil if desired.

Step 5 Divide the pasta and kale mixture between 2 plates. Top each with a salmon filet. Serve, topped with parmesan cheese, extra lemon zest, and lemon wedges for squeezing. Enjoy!
