1 lb. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 lemon, juiced
2 cloves garlic, crushed and minced to a paste
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup chopped dill (additional for garnish)
1/4 tsp. fine sea salt
1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 large English cucumber (enough for 24 slices)


  1. Steam the shrimp in a large pot with a steamer basket insert. Cook until just pink, about 5 or 6 minutes.
  2. Mix in the lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, chopped dill, salt, and pepper. Marinate the shrimp in this mixture for at least 1 hour and up to 24 hours. Refrigerate while marinating.
  3. Scrub the cucumber well. Take a fork and run it up and down the outside of the cucumber to make a decorative edge. Slice the cucumber into 24 rounds.
  4. Place one piece of shrimp on a cucumber slice, and garnish with another sprig of fresh dill. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
