Seared Salmon & Coconut Cream Rainbow Chard

This is one of my favorite dinners to make and it is so quick and easy. This takes me maybe 20 minutes. Here is what you will need:

  • Salmon {I buy the frozen center cut alaskan salmon from Costco}
  • 1 bundle of rainbow chard
  • 1 white onion
  • 1 can of full fat coconut milk
  • Ghee {clarified butter}
  • Coconut oil
  • Tonys Cajun Seasoning **optional
  • Flavorgod Seasoning {lemon garlic & everything spicy}**optional

Start by chopping up your onion and rainbow chard. Cut of the dirty ends of the chard but use the remaining once you toss that.

As this begins to cook start on your salmon. I added a generous amount of lemon garlic flavorgod. Then you will add 1 tbsp of ghee to a sauté pan and once it has melted and heated add your salmon seasoned side down.


When adding the salmon to the pan place it away from you. Sear first side on medium high heat for 4 minutes. DO NOT MOVE THE FISH. By not moving it you’re allowing it to get a good crust on it. Flip and cook for a remaining 5- minutes for medium salmon.



As you are cooking the salmon add the remaining chard leaves and sauté til wilted and add the full can of coconut milk. Once you have added the coconut milk let it simmer and add 1 tbsp of Tonys cajun seasoning. Let this sit as you finish up your fish.




Then plate up and ENJOY! I use a bowl for this because you don’t want the coconut cream running everywhere.
