  • 10 slices white bread

Shrimp layer

  • 1 lb shrimp (steamed freshwater) [0.45 kg]
  • 1/4 cup butter [1/2 stick]
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Avocado layer

  • 1 avocado (small)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp pepper (freshly-cracked)

Egg layer

  • 3 eggs hard-boiled
  • 4 Tbsp mayo

For garnishing (see notes)

  • 8 oz cream cheese (whipped) [approx. 1 1/2 cup or 227 grams]
  • 6 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp chives (chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp curly parsley (minced)


  • Cut the bread crust, making sure each slice forms a perfect square, all the same size.

For the shrimp layer

  • Pour in shrimp, butter, and salt in the food processor bowl. Process until you obtain a uniform paste.

For the egg layer

  • Cut eggs into fine slices.

For the avocado layer.

  • Mash the avocado, leaving small chunks. Season with lime juice, salt and pepper.

To assemble

  • Place two bread slices side to side. Cover with half the shrimp paste, follow by two slices of bread, then the avocado layer. Follow with two more slices of bread, cover them with the mayo and place the egg slices forming an even layer. Cover with two more slices of bread, then the remaining shrimp paste and finish with the remaining bread. Make sure to stagger the edges so that they don't all coincide in the middle or the cake will break (see picture)

  • Wrap the sandwich cake with plastic film, making sure that the sides are even. Chill for two hours.
  • Spread the sandwich cake with the whipped cream using a spatula. Decorate.


You can decorate your sandwich cake as simple or as fancy as you want. Other decoration choices might be cucumber, leftover shrimp, lettuce, lime or lemon wedges, carrot, radish slices, olives, etc. Have fun doing it.
