Swedish shrimp sandwich

Jump to Recipe

I don´t cook Swedish food very often but I do make this Swedish shrimp sandwich often! It takes minutes to make and it looks and tastes amazing!

For this shrimp sandwich Swedish I like to use peeled shrimp in lake. Just because it is an easy option.

Here is where my obsession with food really is noticeable. For this shrimp sandwich with mayo I like cucumber slices to be as thin as possible! For me different shapes of pasta taste different and same goes for how cucumber is sliced. 😀

When it comes to egg for this shrimp sandwich with egg I like it har boiled. But feel free to experiment!

Any green leaf salad work well for this shrimp sandwich easy recipe, but I really like peppery arugula in combination with the rest of the flavors.
