Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Cook the barley according to the package directions. Spread on a plate and refrigerate until cool.

  • Meanwhile, heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large cast-iron or other nonstick skillet over medium heat.

  • Season the salmon with ¼ teaspoon salt and ⅛ teaspoon pepper and cook until opaque throughout, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and refrigerate until cool.

  • Using a fork, flake the salmon into bite-size pieces.

  • Cut away the peel and pith of the oranges: working over a small bowl, cut along both sides of each orange segment, releasing the segments into the bowl.

  • Whisk together the vinegar, the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, 2 tablespoons of the accumulated orange juice, ¼ teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl.

  • Add the spinach, cilantro, avocado, orange segments, scallions, and cooked barley and toss gently to combine. Serve topped with the salmon.
