Makes 4 servings
Prep time: 15 minutes
Tip: For perfectly flaky fish, try poaching it in your slow cooker.
Non stick cooking spray
1 ¼ pounds of fresh skinless salmon fillets
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 Tablespoons honey
1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon dried dill
⅓ cup chopped onion (small)
⅓ cup reduced sodium chicken broth
2 pounds Swiss chard or kale, stemmed and cut into 1-inch pieces.
Coat a 3 ½ or 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray; set aside. Rinse salmon; pat dry with paper towels. Arrange salmon in the prepared cooker, tucking under any thin edges. Sprinkle salmon with garlic.
In a small bowl, stir together mustard, honey, vinegar, and dill. Transfer 2 tablespoons of the mixture to another small bowl; stir in onion and broth. Drizzle broth mixture over salmon. Reserve the remaining mustard mixture until ready to serve.
Cover and cook on low heat setting for 3 hours or on high-heat setting for 1 ½ hours. If using low-heat setting, add Swiss chard for the last 30 minutes, stirring once halfway through cooking. If using high-heat setting, add chard for the last 15 minutes, stirring once halfway through cooking.
Carefully transfer the salmon to a serving platter. Stir reserved mustard mixture into chard mixture; spoon onto platter with salmon. Drizzle with any remaining mixture in slow cooker.
