Recipe by UmmBinat
READY IN: 16mins


  • 4
    slices of good-quality white bread, crusts removed
  • butter (for frying)
  • 300
    g peeled cooked shrimp (fresh is best) or 300 g prawns (fresh is best)
  • 5
    tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1
    tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 -3
    tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill (and extra for garnishing)
  • 100 -150
    g fish roe (bleak or whitefish)
  • one lemon, quartered


  • Melt the butter on a frying pan and sauté the bread slices on both sides until golden. Place on a kitchen paper to drain excess fat.
  • Drain the shrimps, cut into smaller pieces (optional; I left them whole, as they look prettier).
  • Mix mayonnaise, mustard and dill, fold in the shrimps. Taste for seasoning - if necessary, add some salt and pepper.
  • Spoon the mixture on top of the bread slices.
  • Garnish with a large spoonful of caviar and some dill. Serve with a lemon quarter.
