  1. Place the leaves of the lettuce hearts in bowls. Add the barley, shrimp and cherry tomatoes.
  2. Pour the soup around the garnish. Top with the oil, lemon juice and sour cream.


To get 1 1/3 cups (325 ml) cooked barley, you will need to cook ½ cup (100 g) pearled barley in a pot of salted boiling water. Drain and rinse under cold water. The barley will keep for 1 week in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
