Chef Marco’s Orzotto With Porcini Mushrooms
You’re no doubt familiar with the many health benefits of the Mediterranean diet, from reducing rates of cardiovascular disease to lowering the risk of peripheral arterial disease and lessening the symptoms of sleep apnea. If you’d like to give this diet a try, why not start with this dish? It’s an authentic taste of Italy!

Ingredients
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Soaking time: approximately 30 minutes
Cooking time: approximately 50 minutes.

1/2 ounce dried porcini mushrooms, broken into small pieces
4 cups warm water
2 tablespoons plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup plus 1/4 cup dry white wine
Salt and pepper to taste
1 scallion, thinly sliced
1 cup pearled barley
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, minced
Dash ground cardamom
Pinch ground cumin
1/4 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Directions
Yield: 8 servings
Serving size: about 1/2 cup

Let dried mushrooms stand in 4 cups of warm water for at least 30 minutes. With a slotted spoon or small strainer, lift the mushrooms out of the water, taking care not to pick up any dirt particles from the water. Place mushrooms on a paper towel and pat dry. Remove any visible remaining dirt. Strain the water, removing all dirt and debris, and put aside for later use. In a medium saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat, then add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Add mushrooms and continue sautéing for 1 minute with frequent stirring. Pour 1/4 cup wine over mushroom–garlic mixture and continue cooking for another 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat. Add salt and pepper to taste; set aside. In a separate large pan, heat remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat; add scallion and sauté for 1 minute with frequent stirring. Add in barley and mix well. Allow the barley to sizzle in the pan for about 2–3 minutes, then mix in thyme and spices. Very slowly add remaining 1/4 cup wine, using a long wooden spoon to prevent steam from burning your hand. Reduce heat, then carefully and slowly add 2 cups of mushroom water to barley while stirring. Allow barley to simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. After 30 minutes, add in mushroom–garlic mixture. Continue cooking uncovered for another 15 minutes, adding remaining mushroom liquid a little at a time as needed, until barley is tender. Remove pan from heat, sprinkle grated cheese over barley, and mix in well. Let barley mixture rest for 5 minutes before serving, adding more mushroom liquid if needed. Barley should be moist but not soupy. Serve hot.

I have another Diabetic Friendly Dish to pass along, Salmon With Cilantro-Lime Salsa. This dish is made using Salmon Fillets, Salt, Pepper, Spices, Olive Oil, Cilantro-Lime Salsa, Garlic Clove, Cherry Tomatoes and more! The Dish 214 calories and 3 net carbs per serving. And you can find this recipe at the Diabetes Self Management website where you can find a huge selection of Diabetic Friendly Recipes, Diabetes News, Diabetes Management Tips, and more!

Salmon With Cilantro-Lime Salsa
If you crave a hot, delicious, low-carb lunch, her Salmon With Cilantro Lime Salsa is for you.

Ingredients
Preparation time: 10 to 15 minutes
Cooking time: 10 to 15 minute.

Salmon
6-8 ounces skin-on salmon (2 fillets)
1/4 teaspoon each kosher salt and pepper (mixed together)
1/2 teaspoon each chili powder, garlic powder and paprika (mixed together)
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Cilantro-Lime Salsa
1 tablespoon of chopped cilantro
1/2 teaspoon of lime juice
1/2 teaspoon garlic clove
1/4 cup of quartered cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon of diced red onion
1/2 tablespoon of olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions
Yield: 2 servings
Serving size: 1 fillet

1. Combine first six ingredients for Cilantro-Lime Salsa in a bowl. Add salt and pepper mixture to taste. Set aside or place in the refrigerator until ready to use.

2. Pat the salmon skin dry with a paper towel. This step is necessary for a nice, crispy skin. Season the skin with half of your salt and pepper mix.

3. Season the flesh side of the salmon with the salt and pepper mix and the chili powder, garlic powder and paprika mix.

4. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.

5. Once the oil is shimmering, place the salmon skin-side down; hold down for 10 to 15 seconds until it relaxes and lies flat.

6. Cook for about 5 minutes over medium-high heat before flipping over. If you feel resistance as you try to flip the salmon, let it cook a couple of minutes longer. Tip: You should be able to slide the spatula relatively easily under the fish when getting ready to flip it.

7. Turn down the heat, flip to the flesh side and let it cook over medium heat for about 3 to 5 minutes, until golden brown. Depending on the thickness of the salmon, you may want to cook it a little longer or less.

8. The fish should be opaque (pink) when done. Test for doneness by slightly cutting open the thickest part of the salmon. If it flakes, you’re done!

9. Serve the salmon topped with the Cilantro-Lime Salsa and your choice of side.
