If you want to try something different but without departing too much from the flavors you're accustomed to, they may be the right choice.

Follow our recipe and you'll get a lovely dish for every season!
Soak the barley the evening before. The next day rinse the barley and boil in water for 1 hour with a little salt. Shell the prawns and remove their intestines. Clean the squid and cut into small pieces. Clean the mussels thoroughly. Take a large frying pan and gently brown the garlic and parsley in some extra virgin olive oil. Add the seafood, heat for a few moments, then add a little white wine and reduce. Add the tomatoes, adjust the salt (only a little) and add the mussels. After a few moments add the cooked barley. Let it simmer for another 10 minutes, then add some pepper and parsley. Serve.
