    Debloves2cook's Note:

    My husband actually saw this recipe on Martha Stewart, Chef Micahel Pollan shared it with her audience. Since we have a fig tree, it was a no-brainer to try. Well we loved it! I know that not everyone will have access to fig leaves, Michael Pollan suggested you could get them free from a nursery. Hey if anyone in my area needs some fig leaves, let me know. But if you have ever been around a fig tree there is a wonderful fragrance that comes from the tree and with this recipe the salmon captures that is wonderful! We serve this with rice and a vegie and/or salad. Michael Pollan serves it with baked, crispy Kale...I have included that in this recipe as well. I hope you are able to try is heavenly! Did I mention that besides DELICIOUS and fairly is FAST & EASY! (Note: Cook time does not include Kale cook time.)
