Great way to use leftover crayfish, if there is any! If not, you can use frozen.


A crayfish party is a traditional summertime eating and drinking celebration in the Nordic countries. The tradition originated in Sweden, where a crayfish party is called a kräftskiva.

Serves 4

2 cups crayfish tails, peeled

1 small red onion, finely chopped

1 tablespoon dill, finely chopped

2 tablespoons herring roe (optional)

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

salt & pepper, to taste


  1. In a bowl mix crayfish, onion, dill, and roe.
  2. Add the mayonnaise and mix gently.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Serve with rye bread.

TIP:

You can also substitute shrimp into this recipe. I love the small salad size shrimp, especially the ones from Ikea.
