- 1 teaspoon olive oil, plus
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 cup millet
- 1/2 lb boneless skinless salmon fillet
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce, plus
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 2 cups snow peas, trimmed
- 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated
- 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup scallion, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup red bell pepper, finely chopped
- 1In a medium saucepan, bring 2 1/2 cups water to a boil. Meanwhile, coat bottom of a large saute pan with 1 teaspoons of the olive oil. Add millet and cook, stirring, over medium low heat until it gives off a toasted aroma, about 10 minutes. Add boiling hot water. Cover and cook over medium low heat until water is absorbed and millet is tender, about 25 minutes. Uncover and cool.
- 2Meanwhile, coat salmon with 1 teaspoons of the soy sauce. Heat a large skillet over high heat. When hot, add fillets, reduce heat to medium and cook until browned, about 3 minutes. Turn over and cook until the salmon is cooked through, 3-5 minutes longer. Remove from heat. Cool in pan. Break into 1" pieces.
- 3Heat a small saucepan of water to a boil. Add snow peas and cook 1 minute. Drain, rinse, and blot dry.
- 4In a large bowl, whisk vinegar, 2 tbsp water, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, salt, and remaining olive oil and soy sauce. Reserve 1 tbsp of the mixture. Toss millet with the dressing. In a small bowl, toss scallions, pepper, snow peas, and reserved dressing. Add half the vegetables and the salmon to the millet.
- 5Spoon millet salad onto a platter. Top with remaining vegetables. Serve and enjoy!
