THE RECIPE: SKAGENRÖRA
(6-7 smaller pieces of toast, or 4 pieces full size)
- about 500g of cold water prawns
- 100g mayonnaise
- 75g cream fraiche or a full fat yogurt (such as turkish or greek yoghurt)
- 2 tablespoons chopped dill
- 2 tsp of squeezed lemon
- 2 tbsp finely chopped red onions
- 2 tbsp fish roe (caviar)
- some grated horseradish or ginger to taste
- 0.5-1 teaspoon salt
- A little cayenne pepper to taste
- Some good bread of your choice
How to make it:
1. Peel the prawns, or if you are using ready peeled prawns squeeze the liquid out. Put in a bowl and make sure to leave some prawns to top with at the end.
2. Add remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix. Season with salt, cayenne pepper and grated horseradish / ginger. If necessary, take a spoonful of honey if the mixture tastes too salty. Leave in the fridge until serving.
3. Slice the bread and fry on both sides at medium temperature in butter.
4. Place a dollop of your ready-made skagenröra on each slice of bread.
Topping: add some of the fish roe, dill, prawns and a slice of lemon on top.
