Ingredients

How to do it

  • 200 gram prawns (shelled weight)

  • 0.5 dl  mayonnaise

  • 0.5 dl gräddfil or sour cream

  • ½ tbsp brandy or cognac (optional)

  • Salt and freshly ground white pepper to taste

  • 2 tbsp finely chopped dill

  • 4 slices of white bread

  • 25 gram butter

  • 50 gram caviar (optional)

  • 4 lemon wedges

  • 4 springs dill, for garnish

  • TOP TIP: Shrimps are a bit difficult to get as good flavour as possible. The best flavour is when you peel the shrimps yourself, yes it takes some time, but the flavour is worth it!

  • Shell the prawns (by hand) and pat them dry with kitchen paper. Keep them cold until required.

  • Mix the mayonnaise, gräddfil or sour cream, brandy, chopped dill, salt and freshly ground white pepper. Keep the mixture cold until required.

  • TIP 2: Ten minutes or so before serving, melt the butter in a large frying pan, add the bread slices and fry until golden brown on both sides.

  • Just before serving, add some of the sauce to the prawns until you have a nice consistency.

  • Serve the prawn mixture piled on top of the fried bread and garnish with a dollop of caviar, a sprig of dill and a lemon wedge.
