Didn’t think twice to pair the two. It was a match made in culinary heaven. Needed to use my wholesome grains that Mother Nature gifted yours truly. Made enough farro salad the previous day. This included sautéed onions, zucchini, mini bell peppers and garlic.


My taste-buds were on high alert. I couldn’t wait to partake of my protein/fiber salad made from Italian pearled farro. Decided to pair same with a seafood treat and went with a favorite of mine, salmon steak. It was a tad thick, so, I made a slit  and kept the skin on.

Seared my omega fatty acid dish in a drizzle of olive oil and set aside. Then finely chopped onions were added to skillet along with chopped olives. Because I know that seafood loves acid, a generous squeeze of lime and thinly chopped lime slices and a pat of butter were added.

Returned salmon to the skillet to absorb all the delicious flavors within and to spoon on the citrus/butter sauce. Topped salmon steak with extra chopped olives and lime and garnished same with finely chopped parsley I had on hand.


One thing I know is that I will be revisiting this Italian treat. And, that’s for sure.

Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
