Excellent pantry scraper recipe. Makes a very hearty bowl of soup with the unexpected addition of barley.

Top Review by Irmgard

This is a really delicious soup! I made a double recipe because I didn't want to end up wasting half a tin of salmon. It will be nice for lunch during the week. I used regular pearl barley as that is what I had on hand so I had to increase the cooking time to 1/2 hour, as well as using 1 tbsp. vegetable oil instead of cooking spray. Otherwise, everything else was the same.
