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."

    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!

    A very good vegetarian sandwiche so refresing and so tasty. I enjoyed it without changing anything. I used frozen shrimp and at the second one I added some arugula. The cucumber was perfect with the avocado butter. One of my co-workers asked for the recipe at once. Thanks Leslie for posting! Its a keeper!
