Shrimp Cocktail with Wasabi Yogurt Sauce
A small taste of Zen cooking for those looking for a bit of adventure.
In a small bowl, mix the yogurt and wasabi paste until well blended.
Cool shrimp to room temperature and dry completely.
With a small iron skillet, toast the sesame seeds and set aside.
Using a peeler or mandoline, slice one cucumber avoiding the seeds, about 3- 4 thin slices.
Stack and julienne creating 2 1/2 inches long cucumber straws.
In a bowl, mix together Wasabi Cream, garlic, lime juice and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Roll a nori sheet into a cone shape and start filling it with cucumber straws, 3 shrimps, wasabi yogurt cream sauce and sprinkle toasted sesame seeds on top.
Repeat the same for each serving.
Serve with a side of tamari soy sauce.
