Classic Swedish Toast Skagen

From About.com, this is a classic Swedish recipe. First introduced in 1958, Toast Skagen is now served at many restaurants across the country. It's a recipe that lends itself to experimentation - try adding minced onion or grated horseradish to taste (some recipes even add a dash of chili sauce), or substitute baked potatoes or avocados for the fried toast points.

  • 6 slices of good bread, preferably homemade
  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • Gently fold together the baby shrimp, mayonnaise, sour cream, and chopped dill; spoon the mixture on the toast points.
  • Top each toast with a teaspoon of salmon roe. Garnish with lemon slices and additional dill and serve.
