Barley with seafood


Delicious barley with the delicate taste and aromas of seafood flooding the mouth. We eat it immediately after its preparation, and of course we all love it. That is why we find it on Sunday tables, especially during periods of fasting, but also on daily gatherings, accompanied by a glass of wine or ouzo.

  • Biscuits
  • 10 pcs mussels etc.

  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 carrot for the broth
  • 2 tablespoons garlic (one for the broth)
  • Or white wine
  • Olive oil
  • Salt, pepper, allspice, bay leaves, a little sugar


  1. In a saucepan put the seafood, onion, carrot, garlic and in a pouch the bay leaf with allspice. Boil for 5-7 minutes. No more because they will harden. Once they boil, remove the seafood with a slotted spoon, but also the bag with the spices, and then mash our vegetables with a hand blender.
