ZWT6 Denmark. No access to a Danish supermarket? No problem! You'll likely need to find a substitute for the dark Danish bread (�rugbrød�) that most Danish sandwiches are made with. Your best bet is to buy the darkets, heaviest bread sold at your local bakery. Be sure to slice it thinly when making the sandwiches. F.com's Deantini gives us tips including purchasing the dark rye bread at most larger supermarkets in Canada which is often called 'vollkornbread' or 'pumpernickel bread', both are acceptable substitutions. Noting a egg/shrimp combo can also be served on white bread - as quite acceptable ;). Recipe from http://www.thecopenhagenreport.com.
