SHRIMP AND AVOCADO APPETIZERS
1 SmartPoints® value per serving
Total Time: 20 min | Prep: 20 min, Cook: 0 min
PAIRS WITH: Cense Rosé
- 1/4 cup(s) reduced calorie mayonnaise
- 1 tsp prepared wasabi paste
- 1/2 tsp soy sauce
- 1/2 large cucumber, seedless, cut into twenty-four 1/4-inch-thick slices
- 1/2 item(s), medium avocado, quartered and then cut into 24 slices
- 8 oz cooked shrimp, about 24 small, peeled and deveined
- 2 large fresh radishes, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup mint leaves, left whole (for garnish)
We prefer the flavor of the wasabi mayo when made with wasabi paste, but if you can't find it, wasabi powder works, too.
To make wasabi mayonnaise, in a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise, wasabi paste and soy sauce until smooth.
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.
