No, this is not what we eat every day in Sweden but I so wish it was! My first evening at the summer house (a Saturday) my parents and I had a proper seafood feast to celebrate being together again and my birthday the week before.
We love girolles almost as much as we love seafood and as they’re in season we started off with a proper girolle toast (fry the bread in butter, fry the girolles in more butter with garlic, add parsley) and bubbly and then got serious about the seafood. We had langoustines with garlic butter, fresh Swedish crayfish (such a treat!), crab claws and smoked prawns. Smoked prawns may sound weird but they are oh so delicious!
It was such a wonderful meal with amazing seafood, great company and the accompaniment of bread, cheese and home made mayonnaise.
1 egg yolk, at room temperature
1/2 – 1 tsp dijon mustard
1/2 tsp white wine vinegar
ca 200 ml neutral oil (I used rapeseed oil)
1 lemon, juice only
salt, white pepper
Mix the egg yolk with mustard and vinegar. Beat the egg mixture while adding the oil drop by drop. When the mixture has thickened you can add the oil in a thin spurt. Season to taste with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
