One Skillet Salmon with Creamy Greens

Lodge Cast iron / September 20, 2017

The Everyday Pan makes it simple to braise vegetables and steam fish at the same time, cutting down the wait for a sweet, creamy, and heart healthy dinner. Thirty minutes, a cutting board, a measuring cup, and one small bowl are all it takes to make this super flavorful crowd pleaser. 

Prep Time

10 minutes

Cook Time

20 minutes

Servings

6

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 2 large yellow onions

  • 2 large bunches Swiss chard

  • ½ cup chicken stock

  • 1 can chiles in adobo
  • 
¼ cup honey 
  • 
6 small salmon filets
  • 
¼ cup heavy cream

  • 2 tablespoons sour cream 

  • Pumpkin seeds, cilantro, & lime for garnish

Preparation

  1. Finely dice one and a half onions; slice the remaining half into 1” rings. Chop Swiss chard to your liking, keeping the leaves and stems separate. 
  2. Heat 12" cast iron skillet over medium for 5 minutes, then add butter and diced onion. 

  3. Sauté until translucent, then add chard stems and cook another two minutes. 

  4. Add chicken stock and a big pinch of salt, then start folding in chopped chard leaves one large handful at a time. 

  5. Pat salmon dry and season it with salt and pepper.

  6. Place 6 onion rings on top of the greens and place salmon filet on top of each (this will keep the salmon elevated and allow for even steaming). Cover and steam for 6 minutes. 
  7. Remove salmon and discard onion rings. Mix 2 tablespoons adobo sauce with honey and brush onto salmon.

  8. Stir in sour cream into greens. Place salmon filets back on top and garnish with herbs, pumpkin seeds, and a squeeze of citrus.
