Räksmörgås (prawn sandwich)
It was breakfast time in an airport in Stockholm and I almost went for McDonalds. But, instead, I saw a wonderful display of the most fantastic Swedish foods. I'm pretty sure this behemoth of a sandwich isn't for breakfast, but I was too excited at the time.
I skimped a lot on the mayonnaise, nixed the dill (not terribly keen on that stuff), substituted langoustines for shrimps, and used arugula. Okay, so I really butchered this Swedish classic… but I went to bed happy and dreamt of vikings, Ikea, Volvos, and ABBA.
Sour dough (or any bread you prefer)
1-2 soft boiled eggs (sliced)
A handful of blanched prawns (or in my case langoustine tails)
A handful of butter lettuce (or in my case arugula)
Lemon (reserve extra for garnish)
Chopped dill (reserve extra for garnish)
Salt & pepper to taste
Mayonnaise to taste
Combine the shellfish, mayonnaise, salt & pepper, squirt of lemon juice, and dill in a mixing bowl
On the bread, lay out your greens and then add the slices of soft-boiled egg
Pile on your shellfish
Serve with a lemon (and if you like the stuff, the dill)
