The Classic Norwegian Open-Faced Seafood Sandwich

This one’s an oldie, but a goodie from the archives and it felt like it was about time to bust it back out for all of you. Scandinavian food is still the rage these days and as it should so happen, one of my favorite lunch dishes is a Norwegian staple; the classic open face shrimp sandwich. Few dishes tend to be as cooling and refreshing a way to beat the summer heat that this.…
