Cucumber rolls with smoked trout and mango


Ingredients

  • 1 ripe mango
  • 1 green onion
  • 1/2 tsp dark sesame oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp hot-red-chili-flake
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 250 g smoked trout or salmon fillet
  • 1 large English cucumber

Instructions

  • Peel mango. Slice fruit from stone into thick pieces, then slice into long thin strips. Thinly slice onion on the diagonal. Place both in a bowl. Add oil, salt, chili flakes and lime juice. Toss to evenly coat. Break or cut fish into long skinny pieces, about the length of mango slices.
  • Using a vegetable peeler, peel long strips from 1 side of unpeeled cucumber until it’s too seedy, then turn over and peel strips from other side. Or using a mandoline, thinly slice cucumbers lengthwise. Working with 1 strip at a time, lay a few strips of mango (make sure to get some onion on it) parallel to the short bottom edge of cucumber. It should overhang on both sides of cucumber. Top with 1 or 2 pieces of fish. Roll up in cucumber. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Slice rolls in half, then arrange cut side down on a platter.

Add cool freshness to any cocktail platter with these pretty rolls. Ripe sweet mango marries beautifully with the trout and crunchy cucumber.

Make Ahead
