Swedish Style Prawn Sandwich

We often ate this sandwich in Scandinavia it was found in many cafes in Sweden and you may have even had it in Ikea :-), its very simple to make and makes a boring sandwich into one with pizazz. Do you like the little Swedish flag? I brought it all the way back from the cafe in Särdal, Sweden. We drove up some lovely country roads off the highway and stumbled on this beautiful old windmill cafe and had to stop for lunch. This was on the menu, it was here I saved a little flag from our meal as I knew it would come in handy later. If your ever on the West Coast of Sweden look this place up you will be in for a treat, friendly staff and it has a delightful gift shop next door. The region is famous for natural soda, apple, strawberry and more. It even has a little cake named after it, I think all towns need one of those.
