Author Notes: This recipe is the result of too many avocados and not wanting them to spoil. I decided to try an Asian twist to a traditional guacamole and to further the direction my thoughts were taking me, I baked up some wonton wrappers and topped them with smoked wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon. The results were these gorgeous little bites of crunchy heat with the cool buttery salmon as a counterpoint. They would make a great appetizer for a party, but we just ate them as a snack.TiggyBee

Makes about 2 cups

  • 2 large ripe avocados
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 4 tablespoons fresh grated horseradish
  • 2 tablespoons pickled sushi ginger, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilatro
  • 2 or 3 splashes soy sauce
  • a few sprinkles of crushed red chili flakes
  • 1 lime
  • toasted sesame seeds
  • wonton wrappers
  • olive oil for brushing
  • smoked salmon
  1. In a mixing bowl, mash the avocados coarsely with a fork and fold the remaining ingredients in. When combined, squeeze the lime on top and mix in.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350. On a baking sheet, fold the wonton wrappers into triangles and place them on sheet. Brush the folded wrappers with olive oil and bake for approximately 8 minutes, or until nicely browned.
  3. Remove wrappers from oven and allow to cool for a minute or two. Slice the salmon to fit and place it on the wrapper, top with the guacamole and sprinkle the tops with the toasted sesame seeds. Grate more horseradish on top if desired.
  4. Note: if your sesame seeds aren't toasted, place them in a dry pan and stir them carefully over high heat for a few minutes while the wrappers are baking.

I tried this exactly as per above and it was perhaps one of the best smoked salmon recipes I have ever tried...definitely one of the best ever!

The first time we had sushi (over 25 years ago) My mother didn't know what anything was on the plate, so she scooped into what she thought was guacamole....which you can imagine was actually wasabi! Thanks for the memory! i will make this for her next week :)

Oh yum, Tiggybee! These sound delicious...reminds me of a salmon-avocado sushi roll with wasabi and ginger, except in a wonton...fantastic!

Thanks Sagegreen! I get a big bag of them every Sunday at my farmer's market. They're so plentiful here now.

What a fortunate set of circumstances - looks wonderful! I love the idea of soft salmon and crunch of wontons. And anything with avocado . . .
