These flaky, seared salmon fillets are elevated by a coating of smoky spices (like paprika, ground yellow mustard, and more) and a savory-sweet pan sauce made with shallot, garlic, dates, and fresh lemon juice. It all comes together over a bed of tender marinated kale tossed with roasted potatoes and sweet peppers.

Prepare & start the potatoes:
1 Prepare & start the potatoes:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Place on a sheet pan. Drizzle with 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer on one side of the sheet pan. Roast 15 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven.

Meanwhile, quarter and deseed the lemon. Separate the kale leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then thinly slice the leaves. Place in a large bowl; add the juice of 2 lemon wedges and 1 tablespoon of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Using your hands, massage the kale to slightly soften. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores. Quarter lengthwise. Place in a bowl; drizzle with 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roughly chop the pistachios. Peel and finely chop the shallot. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Combine the chopped shallot and chopped garlic in a bowl. Pit and roughly chop the dates; place in a separate bowl. Add 1/2 cup of water; season with salt and pepper.

Cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Flip and cook 2 to 4 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.
