Total Time:
30 mins


  • 1 ½ cups water

  • 1 cup pearled farro

  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill, plus more for garnish

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, plus more for garnish

  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided

  • 4 cups chopped red cabbage

  • 2 cups matchstick carrots

  • 1 ¼ pounds skin-on wild salmon, cut into 4 pieces

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander

  • 1 medium English cucumber, chopped

  • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese


  1. Combine water and farro in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low to maintain a simmer; cook, covered, until tender, about 18 minutes. Remove from heat and drain any excess water. Cover to keep warm.

  2. Whisk 4 tablespoons oil, lemon juice, dill, parsley and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Transfer 4 tablespoons of the dressing to a small bowl and set aside. Add cabbage and carrots to the remaining dressing in the medium bowl; toss to combine.

  3. Pat salmon dry and sprinkle both sides with cumin and coriander. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the salmon, skin-side up; cook until well browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until the fish flakes easily, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.

  4. Divide the farro among 4 bowls and top with the cabbage mixture, cucumber, feta and the salmon. Drizzle with the reserved dressing. Garnish with additional dill and/or parsley, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
