2016 Five FACES Chardonnay and Swedish shrimp salad bites


Traditional Swedish Shrimp Salad Bites

Susanne has cooked this classic Swedish dish for decades. It is a recipe that her grandparents would make, and it is served as the first course at many dinner events with family and friends. She would often serve the shrimp salad on a spoon with a toast of sparkling wine when guests arrive. However, it is traditionally served on some crackers or bread throughout Scandinavia. The smaller the bites, the easier to eat — but if you’re into using a fork and a knife, feel free to make your bites as large as you want. Susanne makes this dish often as a nod to her heritage, but with a zest that feels perfect for summer! Serve for guests, paired expertly with Fullerton Five FACES Chardonnay.


Dishing Swedish shrimp salad bites



2 heaping cups of tiny bay shrimp - peeled and cooked

2 tablespoons of minced red onion

10 sprigs dill, chopped

12 straws chives, chopped

Zest of half a small lemon

1 tablespoon of lemon or lime juice

2 heaping tablespoons of mayo, enough for shrimp to stick together

8 cut rounds of white bread



Chop your red onion, fresh dill and fresh chives.

Add onion, dill and chives to the bay shrimp in a bowl.

Add 2 dollops of mayonnaise and mix all together.

Add lemon zest and lemon squeeze.

Cut your bread into rounds (a cookie cutter works great).

Fry the bread in a pan with butter on both sides until slightly brown.

You’re ready to serve. Lump a heaping mound of your shrimp salad onto the bread and top with slices of lime.

Serve chilled alongside Fullerton Five FACES Chardonnay.
