  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • Grease the bottom of a baking dish large enough to hold all the fish you are cooking.
  • Rinse salmon and pat dry.
  • Sprinkle salmon with garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  • Zest orange carefully over the salmon filets.
  • With a knife, remove the remaining peel from the outside of the orange to expose the flesh.
  • Thinly slice the oranges across the sections.
  • On a cutting board, put a large chard leaf. If you can, slice the rib partially out and cut off the stem to make the leaf more bendable.
  • Place a piece of fish in the middle of the chard leaf, then thinly slice one tablespoon of butter and put on top of the fish.
  • Put several of the orange slices on top of this.
  • Wrap each chard leaf around the fish like you would wrap a gift and place seam-side down on the baking dish. Use another chard leaf if needed to make sure fish is completely wrapped.
  • Repeat with other chard and fish.
  • Sprinkle the tops of the wrapped salmon with sea salt and place in the oven.
  • Bake 15-17 minutes or until fish is cooked through.
  • Enjoy!
