Smoked Salmon Sandwiches With Avocado and Wasabi Cream Cheese
1 tablespoon wasabi powder
2 teaspoons water
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
8 slices German-style rye bread
1 ripe Hass avocado
8 ounces smoked salmon, thinly sliced
- Mix wasabi powder and 2 teaspoons water in medium bowl to form paste. Add cream cheese and stir with a rubber spatula until well combined.
- Place all bread slices on work surface. Spread each slice with a thin, even layer of the cream cheese.
