These are amazing! So easy, so elegant. The wasabi mayo gives a bit of heat and the avocado lends delicious, buttery texture.

Ingredients

Reduced calorie mayonnaise

¼ cup(s)

Wasabi powder

1 tsp(s), wasabi paste

Soy sauce

½ tsp(s)

Cucumber(s)

½ large, seedless, cut into twenty-four 1/4-inch-thick slices

Avocado

½ medium, medium, quartered and then cut into 24 slices

Cooked shrimp

8 oz, about 24 small, peeled and deveined

Fresh radish(es)

2 tbsp(s), sliced, finely chopped

Mint leaves

24 piece(s), small

Instructions

  1. To make wasabi mayonnaise, in a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise, wasabi powder (or paste) and soy sauce until smooth.
  2. To assemble appetisers, place cucumber slices on a serving platter and spread each with 1/2 teaspoon of wasabi mayonnaise. Place a slice of avocado on top and then top each with a shrimp; sprinkle with radish and top with a mint leaf. Yields 2 appetisers per serving.

Notes

We prefer the flavour of the wasabi mayo when made with wasabi paste, but if you can't find it, wasabi powder works well, too.
