Wild Salmon with Buttered Kale

Wild salmon is an exceptional source of omega-3 fat, and it’s all the better when you top it with grass-fed butter. Lemon lends an acidity that cuts the richness of the fatty fish, and fresh herbs add depth of flavor and antioxidants.

Incredibly delicious and surprisingly simple, this recipe for salmon with buttered kale is perfect for a light and refreshing weeknight dinner!

  • Preheat oven to 320°F.
  • Place the salmon filets on parchment paper on a baking sheet. Rub with Brain Octane C8 MCT Oil, season with sea salt and top with 1 tablespoon of Grass-Fed Ghee or butter.
  • Wrap the parchment around the salmon, folding the seams and tucking them to make sure the steam doesn’t escape.
  • Bake until fish is medium-rare, which takes approximately 18 minutes.
  • While fish is baking, steam kale until just wilted for about 3 minutes.
  • Drain kale, add remaining butter, salt to taste and plate. Carefully place the salmon on top, sprinkle with chopped herbs and fresh-squeezed lemon and savor every last bite!
