The amount of fillings you need depends on the size of the cucumber you use. I saved some of the cucumber peels to decorate the plate.

Ingredients:

  • 6-9 medium raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 3 Tbsp sake or water
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 whole cucumber, mostly peeled
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2 oz cheese
  • 2 tsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp wasabi sauce
  • 1 tsp chili sauce

Steps:

  1. Begin cutting into the shrimp pieces horizontally. This will keep it from curling up when cooked, making it easier to stuff into the cucumber.
  2. cutting shrimp diagonally
     
  3. Repeat on all your shrimp.

  21. Serve the sauce on the side of the roll, or drizzle around the serving plate. If you have extra fillings, cut them into mini cubes and put them on toothpicks like little skewers.
