It’s a great summer snack you can enjoy with a nice chilled glass of white 😌

For someone who loves prawns this one definitely stood out to me 😆 I discovered it whilst looking for food inspiration from around the world. It’s a type of Smörgåboard which is a Scandinavian open sandwich. You can find shops in Scandinavia that sell variety full of open sandwiches which made me craving to make one!

So here’s my quick take on the prawn Skagen. You are welcome to adjust to your own taste, where it be more sour cream to egg mayo, more lemon juice or even fresh lemon zest.



  • 200g cooked (L) king prawns (I like jumbo)
  • 1 Tbsp sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp who egg mayo
  • 1/2 Tsp Dijon
  • Lemon juice
  • 1 Tsp chopped dill
  • 1 Tsp finely diced eschalots (about a 1/4 of an eschalots )
  • Salt to taste if prawns aren’t already salted 
  • A slice of rye bread or sour dough (toasted on a frypan with a drizzle of EVOO not the toaster)


  • Thinly sliced red onion & dill

Cooking Instructions

  1. Peel and slice your prawns in half lengthwise and set aside

  • You can toast your bread in a toaster but I highly recommend the frypan method for better texture
  • Try adding Yarra Valley caviar or chives as a garnish
  • It’s enough for yourself or can be sliced up into two or 3 pieces to share as a canapé

Wine Pairing

We recommend pairing with our 2021 Estate Chardonnay.
