I like all grains hominy, barley, farroyou name it. When that diet came out that saidwheat was so bad for you, I was like, "Well, I'm in big trouble 'cause that's what mybody craves." And let's face it Kale is the new black! We use it in a lot of soups.
This is my favorite way to cook salmon. It looks beautiful, tastes even better, and there are adozen creative ways to serve it.

Pairs well with the Spring Pea Soup (page 14) or Asparagus Salad (page 220) recipes. Keeps well for up to four days in the refrigerator
