1Squeeze juice from 3 lemon halves to equal 2 1⁄2 tablespoons; set juice aside. Cut remaining lemon half into 8 wedges; set aside. Heat 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Sprinkle salmon fillets evenly with pepper and 1⁄2 teaspoon of the salt.

Transfer salmon to a plate; wipe skillet clean.
2Add stock, collard greens, farro, and remaining 2 tablespoons butter and 1⁄2 teaspoon salt to skillet. Cook, stirring often, until collards are wilted, about 3 minutes.
