Salmon with Kale Chips, Avocado Vinaigrette & Toasted Walnuts

The Faroe Islands Salmon Filet is a staple on our restaurant menu. Chef Todd has prepared the Faroe Islands salmon filet in a variety of ways, but when it comes to recommending an easy-to-cook sheet tray recipe that’s both tasty and healthy, this preparation is an easy choice. Loaded with omegas, healthy fats, and plenty of brain-powering goodness, this dish is as good for you as it tastes. While we’ve served it using the Faroe Islands salmon, the recipe also works great with our Ora King salmon, too.

  • 4 pieces of Faroe
  • Islands organic salmon or Ora King salmon
