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.
- salmon (fresh)
- 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’.
To cook okra:
Cut and pan fry (with butter or oil, of course!)
