Pan Fried Salmon + Barley

May 10, 2015

Since today was marked as “Mother’s Day” on the calendar, many ladies I know spent the time in the kitchen cooking for their moms, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, step-moms, etc. (Who said you have to be biologically related to be a female role model to someone?)

We cooked a nice organic breakfast for our mom with eggs, different hams, veggies, etc. For dinner we decided to keep it simple with pan-fried salmon, barley, and okra.

You’ll need:

  • salmon (fresh)
  • eggs
  •  flour
  • barley
  • okra
  • butter
  • salt (to taste)

To cook barley:

I recommend starting the process with barley as it takes the longest to cook. To a cup of barley, boil 2 cups of water. Boil the water first, then add barley, add some salt and butter. Turn the heat to ‘low’, cover with a lid, and let simmer for 40-45 minutes. Easy-peasy.

To prep and cook salmon:

Cut the salmon into 2 inch fillets.

Mix two eggs in a separate bowl. Add salt. Pour some white flour into a different bowl.

Dip the salmon filets in the eggs, then into the flour. Add to the pan and fry for about 5 minutes on each side on ‘medium high’.

Cut and pan fry (with butter or oil, of course!)

    This looks really nice! I love salmon, though usually my mother cooks it for! XD I m not really a fan of fried foods though, my mother usually grills salmon or makes a really good soup out of it and it is dee-licious. I m sure yours is too. My favorite seasonings include black pepper, soy sauce, and or lemon juice.
