"Named after a fishing port at the northern tip of Denmark, Toast Skagen is typically served as a starter at Swedish dinner parties. Toast Skagen is an elegant combination of prawns and other ingredients on a small piece of sautéed bread. When you really want to celebrate something, be extravagantly generous with the whitefish roe. The sprig of dill on the top serves as a fanfare."

Step 1

Using a biscuit cutter, cut a round out of each bread slice. Sauté the bread in a little butter until golden brown on both sides. Place on paper towels.

Step 2

If the prawns are large, cut them into smaller pieces. Save four sprigs of dill for garnishes. Finely chop the rest of the dill and mix with the prawns, mayonnaise and mustard.

Step 3

Apportion the mixture on the slices of sautéed bread. Shape the whitefish roe like eggs and place on top of the shrimp mixture. Garnish each with a sprig of dill and serve with a slice of lemon.
