Spiced Steamed Salmon with
Chutney and Chard

Daniel Boulud's
Cafe Boulud Cookbook:
French-American Recipes
for the Home Cook

by Daniel Boulud and Dorie Greenspan, 1999, Scribner

“This recipe comes with the American Heart Association’s stamp of approval.
I created it for a gala meal honoring the Association and made sure that less
than 30 percent of its not-many calories came from fat and that it had fiber,
fruit, antioxidant leafy greens, and, just for good measure, fabulous flavor –
 not a written requirement on the AHA’s list, bet certainly one that’s high
on mine.
The recipe has four components, all surprisingly fast and simple to prepare:
sautéed Swiss chard, steamed curry-rubbed salmon, a fresh pineapple and
dried cherry chutney (a make-ahead condiment that’s irresistibly snackable),
and a lightly curried broth with head-spinning aroma. And each component
can be mixed and matched. When you’re looking for a change, try slipping
slices of chicken breast into the dish in lieu of salmon or serving the card,
chutney, and broth with rice.”

Makes 4 servings

The chutney:

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 small onion, peeled, trimmed, and
finely diced
1/2 small apple, peeled, cored, and
finely diced
1/8 pineapple, peeled, cored, and
finely diced
1/4 piquillo pepper or roasted red
bell pepper, finely diced
1 tablespoon dried cherries,
soaked in hot water until plump
and soft, drained, and finely diced
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon Madras curry powder
1/2 cup rice vinegar
Salt and freshly ground white pepper

Warm the oil in a medium sauté pan or skillet over medium heat, then add
the onion. Cook, stirring, until the onion is translucent but not colored,
about 2 minutes. Toss in the apple, pineapple, pepper, cherries, sugar,
and curry powder and cook only until the fruits are tender but not mushy,
a matter of a minute or two. Pour in the rice vinegar, bring to the boil, and
cook until the liquid is reduced by half. Pull the pan from the heat, season
the chutney with salt and pepper, and set it aside until serving time. The
chutney can be served warm or at room temperature. (The chutney can
be made up to 2 days ahead and kept well covered in the refrigerator.
Bring to room temperature or gently warm before serving.)

 The broth:
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon finely diced onion
1 tablespoon finely diced peeled carrot
1 teaspoon Madras curry powder
1 tablespoon grated peeled ginger
1 tablespoon finely chopped
lemon grass bulb
1/2 cup dry white wine
2 cups unsalted chicken stock or
store-bought low-sodium
chicken broth

Salt and freshly ground white pepper

1. Warm 1 tablespoon of the oil in a medium sauté pan or skillet over
medium heat and, when it’s hot, add the onion and carrot. Cook,
stirring, until the onion is translucent but not colored, about 2 minutes.
Toss in the curry powder, ginger, and lemongrass and cook for 2
minutes more. Deglaze the pan with the white wine, cooking until
the wine evaporates. Pour in the chicken stock, bring to the boil,
reduce the heat, and allow the broth to simmer for 20 minutes
while you prepare the chard.
2. When the broth is ready, pass it through a fine-mesh strainer into a
bowl. Discard the solids, season the broth with salt and pepper,
and whisk in the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Set aside in a warm
place until serving time. Right before serving, reheat the broth
and, if you want, emulsify it with an immersion blender.

The chard:

2 pounds Swiss chard, stems and
tough outer leaves removed,
washed, and cut into thin strands
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground white pepper

1. Bring a pot of salted water to the boil, toss in the chard, and blanch
just until it is tender, about 5 minutes; drain well.
2. Warm the oil in a large sauté pan or skillet over medium heat and
add the chard. Sauté for just 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt
and pepper, then set aside in a warm place until needed.

The salmon:

Four 6-ounce salmon fillets, skin on
1 teaspoon Madras curry powder
Salt and freshly ground white pepper

Season the fillets with the curry powder and salt and pepper. Bring a
small amount of water to the boil in the bottom of a steamer (a wok with
a bamboo steamer, a fish poacher, or a stockpot with a steaming rack is
ideal). Place the fillets skin side down on the steamer tray, making sure
that the fish does not come into contact with the boiling water, cover,
and steam until the fish is opaque around the edges but still moist and
rosy inside, about 10 minutes. Remove the tray from the steamer.

To serve: Divide the chard among four warm shallow soup plates.
Arrange the salmon over the chard and top each fillet with a spoonful
of chutney. Ladle the hot broth around the fish and serve immediately.

To drink: An American Gewurztraminer
