Smoked Salmon Sandwiches With Avocado and Wasabi Cream Cheese

Ingredients

1 tablespoon wasabi powder
2 teaspoons water
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
8 slices German-style rye bread
1 ripe Hass avocado
1/2 lemon
8 ounces smoked salmon, thinly sliced

Directions

  1. 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.


  2. Place all bread slices on work surface. Spread each slice with a thin, even layer of the cream cheese.

  3. Cut the avocado in half lengthwise and twist the 2 halves apart and remove the pit. Use a spoon to remove the avocado flesh from one half. Slice the each half into 1/8-inch slices. Place the avocado slices in a bowl and squeeze juice from 1/2 lemon over avocado slices and toss gently.
  4. Cover each bread slice with a single layer of salmon, followed by a layer of avocado slices.

  5. Top each sandwich with remaining slice of bread.
