A little while ago I was invited to a summer party where we enjoyed food and drinks. Invitation said bring a friend, your special someone or a colleague. I read friends, so I brought the three youngest children. Oops, maybe a few to many.
This years menu was a little simpler than last years bbq, but there was nothing simple about it. We had grilled cheese sandwiches with duck comfit, ramson mayo and pickled red onion and pizza made by the Norwegian and European pizza champion. My children are used to eating good food around the world, but the grilled cheese and pizzas made an impression on them. After a few hours one of them told me that we had to leave or he would keep eating. He was right, I too was quite full, but kept wanting more.
Grilled cheese sandwiches are really easy to make, there are no hocus pocus to it.. To make this sandwich you need bread, sous vide duck, pickled ramson buds, mayo and some nice cheese or if you want the original version you need bread, duck comfit, pickled red onions, ramson mayo and cheese.
Assemble the sandwich and grill until it is golden and the cheese has melted. then enjoy.
I got hold of some fresh raw shrimps from the fjord not far from my livingroom window and felt like some type of Po’ boy sandwiches

Sometimes I want something simple and easy, specially when I am home by myself.
These mini open faced sandwiches are easy to make and taste wonderful. saltness from the seafood, sweetness from juicy mango and a little sting from the chilies.
3 parts sour cream
1 part sweet chilisauce
diced red onion
Butter for frying
Cut the bread in to the shape and size you want, fry them in a pan with a little butter.
Mix the sour cream and the sweet chili sauce together, see the ratio above.
Spread some of the dressing on the toasts and build your little sandwich. Put some crabmeat on top, then mango bits, diced red onion, fresh coriander and chili slivers.
