Here's the gameplan on this one. We're going to make our own sweet and smoky barbecue spice mix, smother some salmon in it, and air fry it to perfection. Then, we'll serve it alongside some kale that been slowly braised until it's soft and succulent. And, we'll serve it all over some garlic couscous for a healthy, flavorful, and totally delicious meal.
Let's start with the kale. My inspiration for this braised kale was good ol', soul food style collard greens. I feel like there are so many kale haters in this world, that I wanted to give the kale the opportunity to shine in a completely different and unexpected way. So, I wanted to take those rich, meaty flavors that collards get from a smoked turkey or ham hock, and I wanted to recreate that same feeling without any meat. And by jove, I think I've done it!
