Swedish Crayfish Party – How To Celebrate – Roxanne’s Way

Swedish Crayfish Party – How I Celebrate

Swedes all over Love their crayfish party and there are many ways to host this type of party, and this week, our People’s Hero Roxanne shares her way of celebrating through a few simple questions.

Where do we usually find you during the crayfish festivities and what are the essentials?

This is a tradition I usually celebrate back home in Sweden. You would probably find me at my friend’s house sitting in their garden (warning the neighbors beforehand about the loud singing that might occur throughout the night)

One of the essentials – except for the actual crayfish – is of course the aquavit (snaps). And it is law amongst my friends to sing a ‘snapsvisa’ called ‘helan går’ (everything goes) before we take a shot of Skåne aquavit.

Crayfish of course –a lot of them. We usually also have a lot of other sea food such as prawns as everyone don’t like crayfish. To our crayfishes we serve a variety of other food that goes really well with the sea food.

We always have Vasterbotten quiche, different types of bread (crispbread of course), cheese with caraway or with cloves and many different styles of nibbles (sour cream and onion crisps being my favourite to snack on throughout the night).

Is there any essential that is a must have?

Snapsglas! (shot glasses) how would you drink all the snaps otherwise?

What is your advice for the crayfish rookies that want to host the festivities?

Well – don’t go dressed as you were going to meet the queen – when eating crayfish you have to be ready for the mess.
