    ~Leslie~'s Note:

    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.

      This made an excellent lunch! We loved the lemon and chili flavours with the avocado and shrimp, tangy and zesty! I served it on some fresh sourdough bread, which complimented the recipe nicely. Yum. Thanks Leslie!
