Kale, anchovies, and red pepper flakes are a match made in heaven. Make sure to finely chop your kale so it's about the same size as the panko.


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 cup (packed) finely chopped kale

  • 2 plump anchovies, minced

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • ¼ cup panko bread crumbs


Make the Breadcrumbs

In a medium skillet, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the kale and cook over medium heat, stirring, until darkened and crisp, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the anchovies, red pepper, and panko and cook, stirring until golden, about 2 minutes longer.

Cool and Serve

Let cool completely, then sprinkle over cooked fish.
