One-Pan Salmon Dinner Recipe

Salmon With Crispy Cabbage and Kale Is a 1-Pan Wonder

Fresh, crisp, and lemony bright . . . no, we're not talking about a green salad, but rather a ridiculously fast and easy one-pan meal of salmon, kale, and cabbage.

A brief trip to a screaming hot oven wilts the greens like a sauté while adding a crisp texture to the edges that's not unlike a kale chip. The salmon cooks through perfectly so that its just barely flaky while retaining its suppleness, and a lemony-bright mustard and dill dressing ties it all together.

The best part? There are only five dishes to wash: a cutting board, knife, quarter-sheet pan, mixing bowl, and a whisk.

Notes

If you don't like to eat salmon skin, ask your fishmonger to remove it for you. To serve 4, double the recipe and cook it on a half-sheet pan.
