This big shrimp toast is a Swedish classic, especially on the west coast where they catch fresh shrimp. If you think the sandwich is too big, you can make shrimp canapés of them too! Use the same components but make them in a smaller version.

Cover the bowl and let the dough rise for 1 hour.

Make sure the oil is around the same temperature as the egg mixture and start to drizzle it into the bowl in a slow stream while whisking constantly.
Whisk while adding the oil until all the oil is emulsified to a mayonnaise.
Put the eggs in a pot with cold water and bring the water to a simmer over medium heat. Once the water starts to simmer, let the eggs stay in the water for 10 minutes.
Transfer the eggs to a bowl with ice water and let them cool down for 10 minutes.
