  • 6 slices of pumpernickel bread
  • Butter, softened, to spread
  • 150g small, cooked prawns/shrimp, peeled (5.3 oz)
  • 2 ½ tablespoons mayonnaise (good quality)
  • ¼ tsp Dijon mustard
  • Pepper, a pinch
  • 1 teaspoon dill, chopped finely
  • 80g caviar (2.8 oz)
  • 2 tablespoons chives, chopped finely
  • Lemon wedges, thinly sliced, for serving


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