From the Test Kitchen

Traditional steakhouses are well known for a variety of gourmet dishes—including exceptional seafood. In this recipe, we’re making a hearty, steakhouse-inspired meal with delicious salmon fillets. We’re coating our fillets in a distinctive blend of warming spices (including two kinds of paprika, fennel seed and more) and sweet brown sugar, then pan-searing them. On the side, we’re serving up a duo of steakhouse staples: simple roasted potatoes and “creamed” kale—or kale sautéed with garlic, scallions and butter, then finished with Parmesan, for a lighter take on the classic.

Preheat the oven to 475°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Remove and discard the kale stems; roughly chop the leaves. Peel and mince the garlic.
