This starter, named for a fishing port in northern Denmark, was created by Swedish restaurateur Tore Wretman in 1958. Its appeal remains fresh and modern. If there is an Ikea near you, swing by to pick up the precooked small Swedish shrimp available there; they are a real taste of Sweden.
These fancy sandwiches can seem like a lot of work, but once you've made the sauce, putting together two big sandwiches and cutting them into individual rectangles means it's no trouble at all to serve enough for a crowd.
Serve this leek bread pudding for a delicious accompaniment to any meal -- including your Thanksgiving feast.
