This blog is dedicated to Mum, my greatest mentor. It is a compilation of simple recipes - Bengali, Indian, Burmese and Continental, among others. All of these recipes have been tested in my kitchen. Most use everyday ingredients found at your local market, but some use specialty ingredients available at Asian and/or Indian markets. Comments are welcome and members are invited to send in any recipes they would like to share.
These crunchy morsels are very quick and easy to assemble and make the perfect side dish at any meal. I used ready-cooked salad or baby shrimp, English (seedless) cucumbers and jalapeno flavored cream cheese. The drop of Sriracha sauce gives the perfect touch to these yummy appetizers.
1 English cucumber, cut in 1/2 inch slices
8 oz. cooked salad shrimp 2 Tbsp. honey mustard dressing
2 Tbsp. Philadelphia cream cheese (flavored with chives, dill or jalapeno)
Sriracha rooster sauce to taste
Toss salad shrimp with dressing and set aside.
Spread a thin layer of cream cheese on each cucumber slice.
Top with 3 baby shrimp and garnish with a drop of Sriracha sauce.
