Serves:

Prep:

25 Min

Method:

No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

4-cucumbers
8 oz of cream cheese(softened)
8 oz of sour cream
3 oz package of smoked salmon (chopped)
1 shallot diced or the white bulb of a green onion
1/2 lemon ,juiced with seeds removed
salt and pepper to taste (watch the salt)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Using a peeler,create stipes on the outside of the cucumbers by peeling along the length of the cucumbers ,leaving every other section intact.Cut off the ends of the cucumbers and slice into 1 inch rounds.Using a mellon baller ,scoop out the seeds and the inner flesh from 2/3 of each cucumber slice.DO NOT SCOOP ALL THE WAY THRU.Set aside
2
In a bowl combine equal parts cream cheese and sour cream.Mix in the chopped salmon ,the diced shallots,lemon juice,salt and pepper,combing throughly.Tranfer the mixture to a pastry bag with a 8 star tip.Pipe the filling generously into each cucumber slice...I sometimes garnish with a sprig or parsley or dill if I have it.
3
Personal note: I often use a small zip lock bag to pipe the filling in ,just cut off a small end of a corner of the bag and pipe the filling in that way .....I buy the smoked salmon in the seafood area where they keep the imatation crab meat....For a large group I double or triple this recipe...I have use chopped shrimp or chopped inmation crab meat for this recipe instead of the salmon
