October 12, 2022

Makes 2 servings


1/4 cup gluten-free orzo (I like Jovial® Organic Grain-Free Cassava Orzo)

4 cups swiss chard

3 1/2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided

1 cup cherry tomatoes

1 oz. red onion, sliced

1/4 cup basil leaves, chopped

1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

1/4 cup pumpkin seeds

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 clove garlic, minced

1 1/2 tsp sea salt, divided

1 tsp garlic powder

12 oz. Chilean sea bass


1Prepare orzo according to instructions. Set aside.

2Wash and cut swiss chard into shreds and sauté with ½ tbsp of olive oil for 3 minutes. Set aside.

3Place in a bowl with cherry tomatoes, basil, red onions, parsley, pumpkin seeds, 2 tbsp olive oil, apple cider vinegar, minced garlic, and ½ tsp salt. Toss ingredients together and place in the refrigerator.

4Sprinkle garlic powder and remaining salt over sea bass.

5Place remaining olive oil in sauté pan on medium heat.

6Place sea bass in the pan. Sear for 10 to 15 minutes on each side or cooked all the way through. Sea bass should be firm to the touch and golden brown on both sides.

7Take orzo salad out of the refrigerator and add swiss chard. Mix and spoon salad onto a plate. Top with sea bass and serve.
