Cook the farro
While the farro cooks, prepare the rest of the meal.
Prep and cook the fish
- Using a peeler, remove the zest in wide strips from the lemon, being careful to remove only the outermost yellow layer and leave behind the bitter white pith. Juice the lemon; side aside for the salad. [Zest both lemons; juice 1 lemon. Save the remaining zested lemon.]
- Strip the basil leaves from the stems.
- Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season lightly with salt and pepper.
Add the fish, cover, and cook, undisturbed, until opaque and flaky, 4 to 6 minutes for sole or halibut, 3 to 5 minutes for trout. Transfer to a plate to cool slightly, then using a fork, flake the fish into bite-size pieces (discarding the salmon or trout skin if desired); season to taste with salt and pepper. Discard the poaching liquid.
While the fish cooks, prepare the salad.
