Directions

Step 1

In a small ceramic dish, mix maple syrup, soy sauce, cider vinegar, black pepper and rosemary. Add salmon and let marinate for 2 hours.

Step 2

In a medium sized cast iron skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium high heat. Add salmon and cook 20-30 seconds per side, or until fish is medium.

Step 3

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add bacon and cook 4-6 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.

Step 4

Add onion and cook 5 more minutes or until they soft and translucent. Add garlic and rosemary leaves. Stir to combine.

Step 5

Add white wine to deglaze pan. Add barley and stir to combine.

Step 6

Clean swiss chard and remove stems. Cut stems into 1 inch pieces and tear greens into bite size pieces. Keep stems and greens separate.

Step 7

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chard stems and corn and cook 3-4 minutes, or until tender.

Step 8

Add white wine or stock and let liquid reduce slightly, another 3-4 minutes.

Step 9

Add greens and cook 2-3 minutes, or until wilted.

Step 10

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Step 11

Place bacon on a baking sheet and into oven. Bake for 10 minutes.

Step 12

Brush maple syrup onto bacon and continue cooking. Baste bacon with maple syrup every 5-10 minutes, or until bacon is golden and crispy, for a total of 25-30 minutes. Let cool, and break into pieces.
