So easy, so elegant, these dazzlingly beautiful appetizers are ready in under 20 minutes, do not require any cooking and have only eight ingredients! The wasabi mayo gives a bit of heat and the avocado lends delicious, buttery texture to the crunchy-cool cucumber base. You can purchase peeled and deveined shrimp already cooked in most freezer sections or have your fishmonger steam the shrimp from fresh at the market. Either way, this recipe will make you want to have a party tonight!


Reduced calorie mayonnaise

¼ cup(s)

Prepared wasabi paste

1 tsp

Soy sauce

½ tsp


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


½ item(s), medium, quartered and then cut into 24 slices

Cooked shrimp

8 oz, about 24 small, peeled and deveined

Fresh radish(es)

2 large, finely chopped

Mint leaves

¼ cup(s), left whole (for garnish)


  1. To make wasabi mayonnaise, in a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise, wasabi paste and soy sauce until smooth.
  2. To assemble appetizers, 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 appetizers per serving.


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