1/2 Photos of Avocado Butter With Baby Shrimp Sandwiches
The easiest way to prepare this sandwich is to buy frozen cooked baby shrimp. Defrost them in the refrigerator overnight and drain before marinating. The cucumber slices are salted before using to draw out their juices, which would otherwise make the sandwich soggy. By Lucy Waverman for Food and Drink. Cook time is "resting" time for cucumbers.
