In sweden this Skagenröra, prawn salad is a classic starter on buttered toast, but works as a canape on endives (chicory) too. You can use the green ones if you like, I just thought it looked pretty with the red endives. 🙂
Skagenstyle prawn salad on endives
100 grams fresh peeled prawns
4 tbsp mayonnaise (I used Hellman’s)
3 tbsp creme fraiche
1/2 lemon, juice from
1/2 bunch dill, chopped
Take all the leaves of the stem of the endive, rinse, let dry and place on a plate. Chop the prawns roughly, chop the dill finely and mix together with creme fraiche and mayonnaise. Squeeze the lemon juice over it and stir. Season with salt and white pepper if you want. Place a teaspoon-ful on the leaves. Use a small lemon wedge for decoration. (Take a lemon slice and cut it into 8 wedges).
N.B. Skagen is a seaside town in Denmark, known for its fishing harbour, its amazing lights and the Skagen painters. Visit sometime, it’s lovely!
