Classic Toast with Shrimp and Roe ||| Text excerpted from SMORGASBORD © 2017 by Johanna Kindvall ||| Despite the fact that it’s named after a Danish fishing port, Toast Skagen is a classic Swedish appetizer. It was invented in the 1950s by Tore Wretman, founder of the Gastronomic Academy in Sweden, while he was on a sailing trip to Skagen, Denmark’s northernmost town. When his sailboat suddenly lost wind, Wretman cheered up his crew by whisking together some mayonnaise, hand- peeled shrimp, and fresh dill, then piled it on butter- fried bread and topped it with golden whitefish caviar. This version has the addition of horseradish, which I think goes really well with shrimp. For this recipe, I suggest using extra- small precooked shrimp, but you can also substitute raw shrimp— just be sure to cook them in salted water for a few minutes until cooked through and let them cool completely before adding them to the rest of the ingredients.
