Smørrebrød Smoked White Fish Sandwich with Caviar and Raw Egg Yolk

Here is an example of a tall sandwich as the colorful layers of the toppings are stacked.  This delicious smoked white fish open faced sandwich is great for either lunch or dinner.

Below are a few ingredients to make an absolutely delicious white fish sandwich. 


  • 1 slice of white bread (Italian or French)
  • butter (European-style butter is easier to spread)
  • 1 raw egg yolk held inside 1/2 an egg shell
  • 1 wedge of lemon
  • 4-6 pieces of smoked white fish (smoked herring or mackerel are great options too)
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons of black caviar
  • fresh radish as garnish 
  • chopped dill for taste & decoration 


  1. Before adding a topping, spread butter onto either a slice of French or Italian bread.  This protects the bread from moisture.
  2. Generously lay across the white bread either 4-6 pieces of smoked white fish (depending on size(. You want to cover the bread with the smoked white fish.
  3. Add on top of the smoked white fish 1 to 2 spoonfuls of black caviar.
  4. Next, carefully tip an half egg shell onto an angle so that the white begins to separate itself.  Remove as much of the white as you can while keeping the yolk intact in the shell.  Place the egg shell with the yolk inside in the middle of the black capers so that it settles just enough to stay upright
  5. Garnish with dill on the side of the eggshell
  6. On the side add a wedge of lemon and fresh radishes.

It’s that easy! This sandwich goes great with a Danish beer too.  We usually set the table with a Royal Copenhagen plate, a fork, a knife and a glass for the beer.
