Skagenprawn - Swedish Shrimp Salad

Posted by on


Toast skagen, or skagenröra, refers to the northern Danish town of Skagen. The dish was invented by the Swedish chef, Tore Wretman, in the mid-1950s, on a sailing trip along the Danish coast. Today, it is one of the most popular dishes in restaurants along the Swedish coast.
Michelin-Starred Scandinavian chef Nikas Ekstedt recommends using the salad as a topping on hot dogs, but it also makes a great side dish.
280g/10oz cooked peeled prawns
