But how many ways can you really eat Kale? I put it in this sausage soup (post to come) that everyone loves. But come on... you can add anything to sausage and it would be awesome. Then you can do the straight up saute in olive oil method and that's tasty too. But that's pretty much my entire repertoire when it comes to cooking with Kale.
So that's why I'm REALLY REALLY excited about this. KALE CHIPS!! You must make this. It's easy, it's tasty and it's got supernatural powers. I'm going to start taking little baggies of this everywhere I go so I can harness my inner Popeye and gain superhuman speed and strength in the face of my greatest opposition (the kids).
For the Kale Chips you need:
4-5 big handfuls of Kale, chopped into bite size pieces
olive oil, or just for today, "Olive Oyl"
salt (can substitue with lawry's or old bay too)
a salad spinner (yes, you NEED this)
And for the Fish you need:
Halibut or another white fish
... these are new at Trader Joes and I'm obsessed. Frozen , boneless halibut filets already in the perfect size pieces, for a very reasonable cost!! About $6 a package.
And the ingredients for frying -
So for the Kale Chips, you have to clean the kale and then dry it WELL in a salad spinner. It needs to be perfectly dry for this to work. Then lay Kale flat on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and drizzle about 1-2 tbl of Olive Oyl over the top and toss well. Put in a 350 degree oven for 12-20 minutes. We'll check in at 12 minutes and assess from there. Keep reading, you'll see!
Meanwhile get your ingredients ready for the fish. Whisk the egg in one bowl, and add a mixture of 3 parts flour to 1 part breadcrumbs on a plate, with a bit of salt.
Lay your halibut pieces on a papertowel and blot dry so that they don't have too much water in them, or they'll be difficult to fry.
Then coat in the breadcrumbs/flour
Keep breading the fish pieces and your fingers will look like this.
And fry on both sides. The best thing about this is that fish cooks FAST so its only about 3 minutes per side.
