Swedish Toast Skagen combines prawns and toast to create a perfect brunch, or an elegant gourmet appetizer for your next special event.



  • 6 slices of pumpernickel bread
  • Butter, softened, to spread
  • 150g small, cooked prawns/shrimp, peeled (5.3 oz)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/4 tsp Dijon mustard
  • Pepper, a pinch
  • 1 teaspoon dill, chopped fine
  • 80g caviar (2.8oz)
  • 2 tablespoons chives, chopped fine
  • Lemon wedges, thinly sliced for serving


  1. Toast the bread, and butter generously.
  2. Aside from the caviar, 1 tablespoon of chives, and the lemon wedges, mix all ingredients together.
  3. Allow to marinate for 10-20 minutes before generously spooning on to the toast slices.
  4. Top with caviar and remaining chives. Serve alongside a lemon wedge.
  5. Eat away. (And then make it again. And eat it again. You know you want to!)


  • If you want to turn these delicious little bite-sized beauties into a big ol’ brunch, everything stays the same…except, instead of using cute triangular cuts of bread, go for a nice big slice so you can really pile on the toppings!
  • This is a simple recipe with very few components, as such it makes a difference to use the best quality ingredients that are available to you – for the most authentic skagenrora, opt for a Swedish roe, and a good quality mayonnaise. If you have one nearby, you can pick up some frozen shrimp from Ikea…authentic Swedish shrimp for this Swedish toast!
