Directions

  1. Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze: Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Combine in a bowl. Separate the kale and collard green leaves from the stems; discard the stems, then roughly chop the leaves. Combine in a bowl. Halve the orange crosswise. Squeeze the juice of one half into a medium bowl. Peel and medium dice the remaining half. To the bowl of orange juice, add the diced orange, raisins, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper; stir to combine.

  2. Start the greens: In a medium pot, heat 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the prepared onion and garlic; season with salt (optional) and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 4 to 5 minutes, or until softened. Add the chopped kale and collard greens; season with salt (optional) and pepper.

  3. Finish the greens: Add 1/2 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) to the pot; season with salt and pepper. Loosely cover the pot with foil and cook, stirring occasionally, 5 to 7 minutes, or until the greens are wilted. Remove the foil and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until most of the water has cooked off. Turn off the heat; stir in the cilantro pesto.

  4. Cook the fish & serve your dish: Meanwhile, pat the fish dry with paper towels. Season with salt (optional) and pepper on both sides. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fish and cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Flip and cook 2 minutes. Add the glaze (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, frequently spooning the glaze over the fish, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the fish is coated and cooked through.* Turn off the heat. Serve the finished greens topped with the cooked fish and glaze. Enjoy!
