Arctic Char on a Bed of Kale

Arctic char, related to salmon and trout, is sustainably farmed, making it a "best choice" for the environment. It has a mild flavor and cooks up quickly. We like the taste and texture of Lacinato (a.k.a. Dinosaur) kale in this dish. Serve with mashed potatoes.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup chicken broth, reduced-sodium
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1-1 1/2 pounds kale, tough stems removed, coarsely chopped; 14-16 cups
  • 1 pound arctic char or salmon fillet, skinned, cut into 4 portions
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper, freshly ground
  • 1/4 cup sour cream, reduced-fat
  • 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped, or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 4 wedges lemon, for garnish

Instructions

Step 1
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook shallot, stirring, until beginning to soften, about 2 minutes. Add broth, water and half the kale; cook, stirring, until slightly wilted, about 1 minute. Add the remaining kale and cook until tender, about 8 minutes.
Step 2
Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper and place on the kale. Cover and cook until the fish is just cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes.
Step 3
Meanwhile, combine sour cream, horseradish and dill in a bowl. Serve the fish and kale with the sauce and lemon wedges.
