Shrimp Stuffed Cucumber Appy / My Way

Cassie *


I made these for my Moms Birthday party and were a big hit...My sister made them with crab for another party, and I went by her recipe, tweaking to my own preferences. I believe I liked my version better.

Hope you enjoy!

No-Cook or Other


2 - 3
fairly long cucumbers
5 - 6 oz
cooked shrimp - chopped
1/4 c
each - sour cream & softened cream cheese
minced green onion - tops too
1/4 tsp
lemon juice or to your liking
1/2 tsp
dried dill
1/4 - 1/2 tsp
cajun seasoning - i use 1/2 tsp - tony chacheres
i garnished with red pepper and green onions - could use paprika as well

Directions Step-By-Step

In a small bowl, cream together the sour cream and cream cheese. Stir in onion, dill, lemon juice, chopped shrimp, Cajun seasoning. Mix well. Chill until ready to stuff the cucumber.
Peel your cucumbers. Slice into about 2 inch thick slices. I used a 1 tsp measuring spoon(or can use a melon baller) and carefully scoop out most of the inside. Leaving some on the bottom to hold the filling. I turned upside down on paper towels to drain.
When ready to serve, simply stuff each cucumber round and place on serving platter. ( I spooned filling into a zip lock baggie and piped it into each slice).

Sprinkle with some paprika, dill and maybe some sliced green onions. They are delicious!
