Dover Sole and Kale

I always pick up frozen fish when shopping at Trader Joe. Decided to thaw out the Dover sole for tonight's dinner. TJ's sole is super thin, so however you decide to cook it, know that it will be quick! I happened to have a nice bag of kale so I decided to do a yummy bowl dinner with brown rice topped with kale and sole--quite tasty I must say as well as healthful---a win/win!

1 lb dover sole
1 bag kale
4 garlic cloves, minced
salt and pepper
1 cup white wine
4 T butter
1 small tomato, chopped
1 T capers
1 T balsamic vinegar
brown rice ( I use Uncle Ben's in a pouch when I don't already have some cooked brown rice in the fridge.)

In large deep pan (with lid) melt 2 T butter, throw in the garlic and stir, add the bag of kale and pour in the white wine stir and then cover to wilt--maybe ten minutes--keep checking in case it gets dry and needs more liquid. Lay the fish on top of the greens, salt and pepper well, and then dot with some butter. Put lid back on and cook for maybe ten minutes? In the meantime, in small saucepan, melt 2 T butter, add the tomato, the vinegar and the capers. Cook for a couple of minutes.

In bowls, layer some rice, kale and fish and top with butter sauce. Serve with some bread cause the sauce is good.
