This recipe containing nutrients to help boost your immune system. Dark, leafy green vegetables are among the most nutrient-dense foods. Although kale or chard is often deemed the king of greens, Swiss chard is equally impressive in its wide array of nutritional benefits.
As you can see, a small serving of cooked Swiss chard covers your daily need for vitamins A and K and nearly fulfills the RDI for vitamin C.
What’s more, rainbow chard with a salmon combination is a good source of calcium, magnesium, copper, zinc, sodium, phosphorus and vitamin E.
4-5-ounce salmon fillets
4 large chard leaves, stems removed (save for stir-fry!)
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tsp. grated fresh ginger
1/4 tsp. coarse salt
Fresh ground pepper
Preheat oven to 400F. Place each fillet in center of chard leaf and sprinkle with lemon juice, ginger, salt and pepper. Roll each leaf, stem end to tip, over fillets, tucking ends under to close.
Place packets side by side in baking pan brushed with olive oil and coat each packet with additional oil. Roast until fish is firm and just cooked to the center, 12-15 minutes. Serve immediately.
