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!

    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! Enjoy!
