Thinly slice the kamaboko and cucumber. It looks pretty if you slice the kamaboko so that each slice contains both colours.
Curl the cucumber around itself and tuck one end of the cucumber into a fold to allow it to stand on its own.
Curl the kamaboko around itself, shape it into a flower, then set it inside two of the curled cucumbers.
Place them on a plate, and you're finished. Today I decorated them with wasabi leaves.

Story Behind this Recipe
These are flowers made from kamaboko that has been thinly sliced with a vegetable peeler. Using thinly-sliced cucumber adds a little extra touch.
I added some green to this recipe with cucumber as a garnish (Kamaboko Flowers Using a Vegetable Peeler Recipe ID: 1394630). In the photo, I used leaves to make them look like flowers. If you curl and shape them well, you won't need a toothpick to make them stand on their own. Feel free to do the same with ham or fish sausage.
