A Scandinavian classic, simple and simply delicious...
A Scandinavian classic, the open-faced räksmörgås (shrimp sandwich, though the word sounds much too simple for what it really is) can be very inconsistent in taste depending on where you eat it. If you are near an Ikea store, you can whip up a räksmörgås in your own kitchen, because Ikea sells the little peeled shrimps needed to make it. Make sure you use a really, really good mayonnaise and the freshest of ingredients.
Serving four, you need: 4 pieces of light bread (sourdough is great)
1.5 cups peeled shrimps (we found ours in the freezer at Ikea)
2 tomatoes, sliced
2 hard boiled eggs, sliced
cucumber, sliced (a few slices is all you need)
Butter the bread and spread it thickly with mayonnaise, then add some lettuce, followed by the sliced eggs (you can put a dot of mayonnaise on each egg slice if you want). Put the tomato slices next to the egg slices, add the shrimp and then as garnish, the fresh dill and lemon slices.
