This is a fun take on my favorite kind of sushi: salmon and avocado with a healthy dose of wasabi. I keep it open-faced here so you can see how pretty the insides look and so as not to cover up the succulence of the ingredients with too much bread.

15 min
Yield:
24 pieces

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons wasabi paste, or to taste
  • 1/3 cup cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 24 party pumpernickel bread slices
  • 1 ripe Hass avocado
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 16 ounces smoked salmon, thinly sliced

Directions

Mix the wasabi with the cream cheese in a small bowl. Spread the bread slices with a thin, even layer of the mixture.

Cut the avocado in half lengthwise and twist the 2 halves apart and remove the pit. Use a spoon to remove the avocado flesh in 1 piece. Slice each avocado half in 1/8-inch slices. Place the avocado slices in a bowl and squeeze juice from 1/2 lemon over avocado slices and toss gently.

Cover each bread slice with a single layer of avocado slices. Top with a piece of salmon. Serve as soon as possible.
