Smoked Salmon and Prawns with a warm asparagus salad

I was supposed to meet Elise over at Old Orchard Shopping Mall for lunch yesterday but because I have not updated our calendar for March I’ve totally put the entire family out of balance. So instead she came to my house and Mira could have her friend over at the same time while we enjoyed a very delicious lunch.


 Smoked Salmon

Cooked prawns

1 boiled egg (per person)

Fish Roe (I bought mine at IKEA but you can find it at sushi places)







Red onion




Olive Oil

Champagne Lemon Vinegar


Aioli (4-6 servings)

2 Egg Yolks

1 tablespoon Vinegar

1 minced Garlic Clove

2 Deciliter/less than 1cup Canola Oil

Chili Flakes


 Salmon salad1

How to: Start by separate the yolk from the egg white and mix in all the ingredients except the Canola Oil that will be added slowly while using a mixer. Taste the aioli to see if you need more garlic or salt.

Cut the Asparagus and boil in light salted water for about 3-4 minutes. Mix in a splash of olive oil and the vinegar.

Cut the vegetables and arrange them neatly on a plate. Peel of the shell from the egg and cut it in half add a tablespoon of the aioli on the egg halves and top of with the fish roe. Roll the salmon sprinkle some lemon over it and finish off with freshly grounded pepper.



I have great friends…

We are a few Swedes that lives here on the North Shore and non of us have family nearby and for some reason the US calendar don’t recognize all our Swedish holidays and traditions!! so we try to do our best to show our kids how it is done in Sweden. Anyhow it’s been a long time since we all got together so Annika invited us all over for lunch this afternoon. I was a bit nervous and when I met her outside school yesterday I told her I might eat at home (just so she would not have to make extra food) because I’m so strict with my diet at the moment. Then my great and awesome friend tells me that she already thought of me and that she was making warm-smoked salmon with a roasted cauliflower salad!!! I have to say thank you to all my patient friends that always has and still putting up with me and my “crazy” ideas 🙂
