Seared Cod with Swiss Chard and Almonds

Premium Hungarian paprika elevates the flavor profile of this dish. Winter greens make a pretty plated entrée and are nutritious, too. Besides more than half the recommended vitamins A and C from the greens, the fish and greens supply a little zinc. Serve with couscous or orzo.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet, 1/2 cup chard, and 2 1/4 teaspoons almonds)
