Salmon with Swiss Chard

This was so good. If you like salmon and swiss chard--make this! I used a product that we really like from Trader Joe's-Brown Rice Medley, also. I had never bought fish at Costco before and this salmon that I purchased there was very good.

1 lb salmon, cut in two pieces
juice of one lemon
some soy sauce
some sesame oil
salt and pepper

About an hour or so before cooking salmon, season the salmon with salt and pepper and pour over lemon juice, the soy sauce and sesame oil. Turn the fish flesh side down and let it sit in the marinade.

1 large bunch swiss chard, washed and dried
1 medium onion sliced thinly
3 garlic cloves, sliced thinly
some olive oil

Separate the stalks from the leaves. Chop the stalks and rough chop the leaves. Get your rice medley cooking as it takes some time.

Get out two skillets (one with lid). You can sort of cook these side by side. In large skillet with lid heat some olive oil, get your garlic and onions started. In the other skillet heat some olive oil until smoking a bit and add your fish flesh side down and cook about 4-5 minutes (depending on the thickness). In other skillet, add the stalks and stir around for about 5 minutes. Flip the fish and cook for few more minutes and add the greens to the other skillet, a couple T of water, put a lid on and let them steam.

Serve layering rice, then greens and top with fish.

Good, yet healthful!
