One Skillet Salmon with Creamy Greens

Lodge Cast Iron | September 20, 2017

The Chef Collection 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.

salmon with creamy greens

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 large yellow onions
  • 2 large bunches Swiss chard
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons adobo sauce (you can use the sauce from a can of chiles in adobo)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 6 small salmon fillets
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • Pumpkin seeds, cilantro, jalapeno, and lime for garnish

Directions

  1. Finely dice one and a half onions; slice the remaining half into six 1-inch rings. Chop Swiss chard to your liking, keeping the leaves and stems separate. 
  2. Gradually heat a 12 Inch Everyday Pan 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 6-8 minutes, or until salmon is cooked through. 
  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.
