Swedish Sandwich Cake – Smörgåstårta


The Smörgåstårta isn’t exactly a cake because it is not baked. It isn’t exactly sandwich because it looks like a cake. Typically the Swedish Sandwich Cake has layers of seafood, fresh veggies, creamy spreads and soft fresh baked bread. However, there are hundreds of combinations to make a Swedish Sandwich Cake.
This type of sandwich cake is great to serve if  you have a large party such as for picnics, family reunions or even birthday parties. The colorful and decorative cake will be the talk of the party for sure. Everyone will wonder what is inside the cake. Once you slice into the cake you will uncover layers of different toppings.  You will need a knife and fork to eat the sandwich cake because it is not the typical sandwich.
 
Ingredients

  • 1 round sourdough 
  • cream cheese
  • cooked shrimp     
  • smoked salmon (or any other filling you prefer)  
  • cucumber  
  • chives (parsley or dill  
  • capers 
  • sliced hard boiled eggs and tomatoes
See our YouTube video to assemble the Swedish Sandwich Cake
Instructions

Cut off top of the bread and slice it horizontally, so you have 3 pieces of the bread. Spread cream cheese on each layer,and place smoked salmon and cucumbers in between the two slices (add shrimp as well if you prefer). Cover the bread with cream cheese on top and the sides and add chives or dill on the side. On the top piece place shrimp, twisted cucumber slices, capers and a slice of the smoked salmon formed as a flower in the center of the cake. Place the finished bread on a plate with sliced eggs and tomatoes around it.

Smørrebrød – Stjerneskud – Shooting Star Open-Faced Sandwich – A Simplified Delightful Version!


This Shooting Star sandwich is my abbreviated version of a famous Danish sandwich.  It is not only pretty to look at, but it also tastes great and is healthy. It’s basically a combination of a variety of seafood toppings.

 

Ingredients:

  • Rye Bread (Rugbrød)
  • Butter
  • Fried Filet of Sole (or Plaice}
  • 1 piece of Smoked  Salmon
  • 1 tbsp Cod roe or Caviar
  • Approx.6 Shrimps
  • 3-4 asparagus
  • Dill
  • Lettuce
  • 2 Lemon Wedges

Directions:

  1. Dip the first fish in flour, egg, and breadcrumbs, fry until golden brown in butter. Once this has cooled we are ready to make the sandwich.
  2. Place lettuce on the buttered rye bread
  3. Arrange the luke warm/cold fried fish on top of the lettuce
  4. On top add mayonnaise
  5. Next place smoked salmon on end of the fried fish and  shrimp on the other end of the fried fish
  6. In between the salmon and the shrimp place the asparagus as if it is shooting up in the air
  7. On top twist two slices of lemon on end of the asparagus.  
  8. Add cod roe (or caviar) on the asparagus and in the center of the sandwich
  9. Add dill behind the lemon
We usually set the table with a Royal Copenhagen plate, a fork, a knife and a glass for the beer. When we have a Danish celebration, we traditionally have Danish beer and schnapps with an open-faced sandwich and say Skål frequently!

      Danish Smørrebrød – Smoked Salmon Curry Rice Sandwich – Jamie Oliver & Uncle Ben’s Rice Competition

      Last summer (summer of 2013) we entered into the Jamie Oliver’s Search for a Food Tube Star with Uncle Ben’s Rice competition.  We had to so much fun making this video. We loved trying to use a typical Danish dish with Uncle Ben’s Rice.

      Our entry recipe video was a Lox Curry Rice Open-Faced Sandwich or in Danish “rissalat med karry og røget laks på smørrebrød”.  The open sandwich recipe is a tall sandwich because of the layers of colorful toppings.  To give the Norwegian smoked salmon sandwich a yummy twist we created for the base of the sandwich a rice curry salad. Below was our YouTube video entry on how to make this delicious Smørrebrød! 




      Ingredients:

      • 1 slice of white bread (Italian or French)
      • butter (European-style butter is easier to spread)
      • 1 cup of cooked (cold) Uncle Ben’s Rice Boiled in a Bag (or your favorite rice)
      • 1/2 a cup of mayonnaise
      • 2 slices of Norwegian smoked salmon
      • 1 hard boiled cold egg (sliced into 1/4 wedges)
      • 1 tablespoon of chopped onions
      • 1 teaspoon of curry
      • 1 teaspoon of capers
      • 1/2 a teaspoon of Dijon mustard
      • 1/2 a tomato (sliced into small wedges)
      • chopped dill for taste & decoration 
      • salt and pepper to taste

      Instruction:

      Rice Curry Salad:

      1. Cook the Uncle Ben’s Boiled Rice in a Bag. We used Uncle Ben’s Rice In a Bag because it was so convenient.  The delicious rice cooks in 10 minutes! Once the rice is cooked set it aside until it is cold.
      2. Add 1/2 a cup of cold rice into a bowl. Then add the mayonnaise and mix it into the rice. Then, add the chopped onion, mustard and curry into the mixture. Finally add salt and pepper to taste. Mix the mixture well as this is the base for the sandwich.

      Open Sandwich:

      1. Before adding a topping, spread butter onto either a slice of French or Italian bread.  This protects the bread from moisture.
      2. Add one to two large spoonfuls of the rice curry salad over the buttered bread.  The rice curry salad should cover the bread. 
      3. Place the slices of tomatoes into a shape of a star.  (see video)
      4. In between each slice of tomato add a wedge of a hard boiled egg (see video)
      5. Place chopped dill on top of the sliced tomatoes and egg.  This gives a nice colorful contrast.
      6. The lox we used in our recipe is the delicious Norwegian Smoked Salmon (røget laks). Lay flat the smoked salmon slices on top of each other.  
      7. Add a teaspoon of capers onto the Norwegian smoked salmon.  Roll the Norwegian Smoked Salmon into a roll. (see video)
      8. Place the Norwegian Smoked Salmon Roll strait up (make sure the capers don’t fall out).  Then stick the salmon roll straight up on top of the dill. If you are looking straight down onto the sandwich, you should see capers inside the roll. (see video)
      9. Garnish with more capers if you love capers!

      Serve on plate with silverware.  It is a great sandwich for either lunch or dinner.
