skinnymixer's Salmon

While holidaying in America, I conquered my fear of ordering seafood and tried a salmon and barley dish – it was deeeelicious! 

Salmon and barley are both very creamy ingredients, and the texture combination works well. Being that it is Good Friday this week, I thought it was perfect timing to try my hand at a new seafood recipe. I hope you all love it.
