A shrimp sandwich like this one is a summer classic in Sweden. Do not let the name sandwich fool you, for it is not an ordinary sandwich. Using fresh shrimps from the sea will make it wonderfully good. It is traditionally served with white round unsweetened bread, and you can choose the size you like.

Ingredient List for 4 servings:
Button
4 White round bread slices
Button
4 Eggs
Button
4 tablespoons Mayonnaise
Button
8-10 Salad leafs
Button
500 gr Peeled shrimps
Button
1 Lemon
Button
8 slices Cucumber
Instructions:
Button
Put the eggs in a casserole, and boil the hard. Take them aside and pour cold water in the casserole and let them cool down.
Button
Butter the bread slices lightly, use the same butter that you have at home for normal sandwiches/breads.
Button
Wash the salads leafs in water and add them on the bread with the top of the salads leafs toward the edges of the breads.
Button
Put some mayonnaise evenly on the salads leafs, don´t use to much, otherwise it will mostly taste mayonnaise.
Button
Peel the eggs and dived them with a egg slicer or with a knife in thin slices, then place them evenly on the breads. If you make two big bread slices instead of four small ones, use two eggs per bread.
Button
Peel the shrimps if you use fresh ones, and dived the shrimps evenly on top of the egg on the bread, make them look like a mountain in the shape, it is more impressive when serving them.
Button
Cut the lemon and the cucumber in thin slices and make a cut in the middle almost right through it. Bend them where you made the cut on two different sides and place them on top of the bread as decoration.
Button
Place the sandwiches in the fridge until it is time to serve. When eating them you can squeeze some lemon juice from the lemon on top of the shrimps for adding some extra taste.

Most children love pancakes and if you make them in different shapes everyone can choose how they want their pancakes to look. It’s a fun way to present them differently. Pancakes are perfect as they can be served warm directly from the frying pan or as a cold snack the day after.
This is a really good but different way of preparing a non sweet cheese cake with a delicious combination with cream cheese, shrimps and a dark bottom, which gives this cake a wonderful creamy taste. It is perfect as a starter, side dish, or why not have it on the buffet table, and the cake is even better if you prepare it one day before. To decorate the cake with some fresh shrimps, lumpfish roe, dill and citron gives an extra nice touch to it all.
This is a typical Swedish apple cake. It is a classic cake to make in the autumn when the apples from the garden are ready to be picked. Serving whip cream or vanilla sauce together with the cake make it a bit more luxurious.
