shrimp salad

To make this creamy seafood salad with shrimp and crab and smoked saladsalmon (also called Skagen röra in Sweden), is very easy and quick. If you haven't had this type of salad yet, then you're in for a treat, because it's really delicious and versatile. It's perfect to serve on top of a some bread, however why not try to serve it on top of a baked potato, as it's traditionally served in Sweden.

This salad is rich, creamy and features great flavor. It's particularly great to make if you have leftover shrimp and smoked salmon from the day before and you need to use it up. However it is tasty enough to plan to do all on its own. You can experiment with the ingredients: traditionally, Skagen salad only contains crabsticks and shrimp, however if you have smoked salmon on hand, then that adds really nice flavor as well.

4 servings:


2 cups of deveined, peeled and cooked shrimp.
1 cup cooked crab (real or crabsticks)
a couple of slices of smoked salmon
3/4 cup of sour cream
1/4 cup of mayonnaise
1/2 peeled, chopped red onion
1/2 cup of chopped fresh dill
1/2 lemon
lemon pepper
If the shrimp are large, chop them into smaller bite-size pieces. Chop the crab sticks and the salmon. Mix all ingredients, squeeze the lemon and season to taste. Preferably let sit in the fridge for an hour or longer before serving.
