Recipe type: Appetizer
Serves: 2-4
Ingredients
  • 1 cucumber (organic if possible since you are leaving some of the skin on)
  • ½ cup strained greek yogurt (strain it through a cheesecloth or towel for a few hours and use the part left in the towel. You can also use cream cheese, but this version has probiotics)
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill (or fresh)(optional)
  • pinch of sea salt and sprinkle of pepper
  • 10-12 shrimp (precooked)
Instructions
  1. Peel the cucumber in alternating strips to leave a striped look on the outside.
  2. Slice the cucumber into ¼ to ½ inch slices and put on a plate.
  3. Mix the strained greek yogurt or cream cheese with the dill, salt and pepper.
  4. Put a small amount of the yogurt mix on top of each piece of cucumber and top each one with a (precooked) shrimp.
  5. Serve immediately or keep in fridge up to six hours.

    These are one of my favourites too… sometimes I add spices to the yogurt/ cream cheese to kick it up a notch, and a dab of spiced up homemade ketchup really goes well too. I have also done this with smoked salmon or tuna.
