World Cup Cuisine – Danish Breaded Fish Sandwich

Posted By Stephen

After being out for a couple of nights, we got back into doing our world cup food this evening and chose Denmark. The Danish national dish is meatballs (called frikkadeller) but various types of open sandwiches on rye bread are also popular. Having a look at the Wikipedia page about Danish food, I noticed that there were two pictures of these open sandwich that both contained breaded fish. Once I had seen them, I really started craving breaded fish so insisted on that even though Kerri was in favour of a variety of different smaller sandwiches.

We floured, egged and crumbed two cod fillets and shallow fried them quickly to give them some colour before putting them into the oven for about 15 minutes. We also cooked a few prawns each, just boiled them briefly in salted water before shelling them. When the fish and prawns were cooked, we assembled the sandwich, inspired somewhat by the picture on the Wikipedia page. It included the fish and prawns along with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, sliced lemon, mayonnaise and a blob of lumpfish roe.

It all worked well together and the breaded cod was particularly good, especially with some of the lemon squeezed over it. It would have been relatively healthy too had I not added loads more mayonnaise to mine.
