TO MAKE SAUCE: 1. In a nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil over low heat. Add onion and carrot; cook, stirring, until onion is translucent, about 1 minute. Add ginger, lemongrass and curry powder; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes more. Add wine, increase heat to medium-high and cook until wine evaporates, 3 to 5 minutes. Add broth, reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes. 2. Press through a fine sieve into a small saucepan. Whisk in remaining 1 teaspoon oil, and season with salt and pepper. (Sauce will be very thin.) Set aside. (The sauce will keep, covered, in the refrigerator up to 2 days.) TO COOK CHARD & SALMON 1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook chard until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold water. Gently squeeze dry. 2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chard and sauté until heated through, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Keep warm. 3. Season salmon with salt and pepper. In the bottom of a steamer or large pot, bring 3 inches of water to a boil. Lightly oil a steamer basket, add salmon, place over water, cover and steam until firm and opaque in the center, about 8 minutes. Meanwhile, reheat sauce. 4. To serve, divide chard among 4 warmed plates and top with salmon. Garnish salmon with chutney and spoon sauce around it. Serve immediately.
