Salmon Sunday Brunch

Some days you just want to be fancy.

from thegloss

Usually not on Tuesdays. Tuesdays are right smack in the middle of the work week.

Usually not on Thursdays either.

Thursdays are right at the end of the workweek–Friday is practically the weekend–and I’m tuckered out by Thursday.

No energy for fancy there.

Don’t even get me started about Mondays.

But Sundays. Sundays are lazy.

You’ve had Saturday to all those chores and errands you put off during the week.

You’ve caught up on all the news.

(well, I did. Maybe you don’t mend. That’s okay. We can’t all be Ma Ingalls.)

The laundry is caught up.

The sock drawer is even organized.

You even picked up a little something nice for Sunday brunch.

I like salmon, so I got some.

It’s hearty, heavenly, healthy, and good with eggs. What more could a girl ask for?

So you wake up when you want to on Sunday, because you don’t have to get up at the ass crack of dawn.

The coffee perks while you lazily move around the kitchen in your underwear.

(unless you have kids. Then you should probably put on some pants.)

You start gathering things to put together a tasty brunch.

First you chop up some kale and put it in a skillet.


For extra flavorful kale, you sauté it in olive oil, and then simmer it in some chicken broth.

simmering kale

Kale is a tough leafy green. The odds are that you will have to add more broth and keep it simmering.

While the kale is simmering, make a glaze for the salmon steak.

I mixed butter, brown sugar, and cayenne pepper into a paste and rubbed it onto the salmon.

glazed salmon

While the kale is simmering and the salmon is resting in the glaze, chop up some new potatoes into rounds and put them in a cast iron skillet with some butter and/or olive oil.


Cook on a low heat, turning occasionally.

When the kale is close to done, its time to cook the salmon.

Put it in an olive oiled sauté pan that has a lid.


Make sure that it is skin side down.

This is why:

burnt skin

It’s way more okay to burn the salmon skin than it is to burn the actual fish. Some people would fight me on that one. I’ll put my flag in it.

As the fish is finishing, remove the kale from it’s sauté pan and throw in a few eggs. This meal was just for 2–El Guapo and myself–so I only cooked 4 eggs.


By now, the potatoes should look like this:


Throw a pinch of  seasoning salt and cayenne on them for flavor.

When the eggs are done,


put them over the bed of kale, and serve your tasty brunch.


It’s perfectly alright to eat brunch in your underwear.

suck it, martha.

    That’s nice! I might pick up some salmon this weekend, some kale and eggs and maybe potatoes on Wednesday at the Market… this could be a nice Sunday brunch for me… although I’d still do the 4 eggs just for me 🙂
