This is a popular seafood sandwich made with shrimps or prawns, mayonnaise and dill and served on fried toast. It is served in many restaurants as an entrée. It is named after a Danish fishing port called Skagen.

1 Fry 4 slices of toast using good quality white bread with the crusts removed as described in the main article.

2 Poach 300g of shrimp or prawns. Drain and cool. Cut the prawns into smaller pieces if they are large.

3 Mix 5 Tbsp of mayo, 1 Tbsp of Dijon mustard, some chopped dill, salt and pepper. Fold in the seafood.

4 Spoon the mixture on to the top of the bread slices, garnish with a sprig of dill. Top with a good teaspoon of salmon caviar, and serve with a lemon quarter.
