Chard Wrapped Salmon with Orange Chipotle Salsa

Submitted by: DOWN2SEXY

Introduction

Adapted from a recipe published by Whole Foods. I reduced the amount of olive oil used and reduced the serving size of the salmon fillets from 4 ounces each to 3 ounces each to meet nutritional guidelines)

I serve this with mashed sweet potato and a salad of chopped romaine tossed with fresh pineapple chunks, chopped cilantro and fat-free balsamic dressing.

Directions

Preheat oven to 425F. Grease the bottom of a baking dish with 1/4 teaspoon oil; set aside. Zest orange and transfer zest to a small bowl. Peel orange and roughly chop, discarding seeds. Add to bowl with zest along with chipotle, 1/4 teaspoon oil, salt and pepper. Toss gently; set salsa aside.

Brush salmon all over with remaining 1/2 teaspoon oil; season with salt and pepper. Using a fork, mash the rib of each chard leaf to make it more pliable. Arrange each salmon fillet on one of the chard leaves and spoon half the salsa over each. Wrap salmon and salsa in chard leaves, folding in the leaf ends to make 2 packages. Arrange in baking dish, seam-sides down. Bake about 15 minutes and serve.
