- 1 bunch Swiss chard
- 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
- 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
- 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
- 4 (4- to 6-ounce) pieces salmon, cut lengthwise in half
- Ground black pepper, to taste
- 1/2 lemon, Juice of
- 1 teaspoon tamari
- 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until the onions are soft and translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic and sauté 1 minute. Add chard stems, cover and cook 2 minutes. Stir in chard leaves, cover and cook 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add 1 tablespoon water, if necessary, to create enough steam to cook greens quickly. When ready, greens should be wilted but still bright green.
Meanwhile, arrange fillets in a single layer on a large plate and season with pepper. Squeeze lemon juice over the top, then drizzle on the tamari and sesame oil. Turn pieces over to coat all surfaces.
Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in another skillet over medium-high heat. Add salmon, arranging pieces in a single layer, and cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side. When salmon is done, arrange it on top of the chard and serve immediately.
