Mushroom Farro with Grilled Salmon recipe by ::steph chows::
Ever tried farro? I fully admit I never had before this weekend. If you asked me what it was I would have said "some kind of grain?" Turns out it is a delicious, flavorful grain, that cooks up similar to rice or quinoa. Boil water, add the farro (you're suppose to rinse it first- I may have forgotten this step... whoops) and simmer until all the water is gone!
You Will Need
Cook farro according to package instructions. While it is simmering, heat a large pan and drizzle with olive oil. Saute onion until slightly brown. Add in mushrooms, rosemary and garlic and let them sit for 4-5 minutes without stirring. Add in spinach and toss until they are wilted. Once farro is done add to pan and set aside.
Drizzle salmon with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill about 2 minutes each side (will depend on thickness of steaks and heat level). Do not over cook... seriously, overcooked salmon tastes like rocks.
Serve farro with grilled salmon on top. If desired lightly drizzle with olive oil and a balsamic reduction.
