Whether it's stormy winter skies fading away to Summer. Or the end of Summer slowly blending into the beginning of fall, this salmon with coconut braised kale and tomatoes absolutely hits the spot. It's not a super heavy wool blanket, but more like a cozy light cashmere one. Enough flavor to wake up your taste buds, but not so much you need to lunge for a glass of water. And, BONUS, it's practically one pot!
Now, a word about one of the ingredients.....it's a controversial one, but it takes the flavor dial and turns it up!
Before you go running off to find another recipe, TRUST ME, fish sauce won't make this dish fishy. Fish sauce adds a really delicious umami flavor -- like mushrooms or soy sauce -- which means it makes your dish taste even more savory.
You can add a splash of fish sauce to this INSTANT POT HEARTY BEEF CHILI, BOLOGNESE SAUCE and soup, like ROASTED TOMATO SOUP, to amp up the flavor. You only need a couple of splashes!
Trust me on this, my friend.....once you make this salmon with kale and tomatoes you'll make it over and over again. Oh, and a side note -- YES, spinach absolutely works if you know your family won't touch kale. The kale wilts beautifully and the slight bitterness balances the sweet flavor of the coconut milk, salmon and tomatoes. But spinach or your favorite greens (Swiss chard, broccoli rabe, collard greens, or mustard greens) will all work, too!
