Swedish Skagen Salmon

Being the only one in my family who loves fish that still tastes as fish, I'm always looking for a recipe for just one person. This is the ultimate recipe to enjoy on your own but to make for your dinner guests as well. It's easy to make, looks good and the taste of the dille combines terrific with the salmon.

This recipe was given me by a Swedish friend of us, I've met last year in Stockholm. He showed us the beauty of Stockholm and the kindness of its residents. Although we're used to a great variety of fresh fish in Holland, I was very impressed by the quality of the salmon and shrimps.

Swedish Skagen Salmon (one person)

One salmon fillet without bones but with the skin

50 gr. peeled shrimps
1 tbsp. creme fraiche
1 tbsp. mayonaise
1 tbsp. chopped dille
cayenne pepper

Preheat the oven at 475 dgr. F. (250 dgr. C.)

Take the fillet and lay it down on the skin. Use a sharp knife to cut a deep opening but without cutting through the skin. It should be like a small pocket.

Chop the shrimps; each in 3/4 parts. Mix the shrimps with the creme fraiche, mayonaise, dille and a bit cayenne pepper. Put the mixture with a spoon in the 'pocket'of the fillet.
Put the fillet on a buttered ovenproof plate and bake it 10 - 13 minutes in the oven.

Enjoy it with cooked new potatoes and green asparagus.
