Stella Star Ingredient: Cilantro Sauce


  • 1 ½ cup pearled farro
  • 2 center cut salmon filets
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 persian cucumber, sliced lengthwise

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a sheet tray with foil.
  2. Place salmon on prepared sheet tray and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 15-18 minutes.
  3. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add farro and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain well.
