Cucumber Cups with Dill Cream and Smoked Salmon

Cucumber Cups with Dill Cream and Smoked Salmon

RuthE

"Classic combos are classic because the flavors go well together! Dill, cucumber, and smoked fish are combined with a bit of lemon to perk things up. Small pieces of smoked trout would be a good substitute for the salmon in this pretty, easy, no-cook hors d'oeuvre. Cucumber cups can be assembled and kept chilled in an airtight container 1 day ahead of time."

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Trim ends from cucumbers and cut crosswise into 24 (3/4-inch-thick) rounds. Scoop a 1/2-inch-deep depression from one side of each round with a small melon-baller, forming little cups. Drain cucumbers, cup sides down, on paper towels for 15 minutes.
  2. Beat cream cheese, chopped dill, lemon zest, lemon juice, and black pepper together in a bowl. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon cheese mixture into each cucumber cup. Top each cup with 1 salmon strip and 1 dill sprig.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:

Substitute Boursin cheese and add a couple capers. Had this in England about ten years ago, and have been making it ever since.

Made homemade Boursin cheese and used. Hubby loved this recipe.

Very good! My cucumbers were mature, so the the quarter inch slices were too thick. Next time I will go thinner. And I bought capers based on another reviewers recommendation, but forgot to add...

I tried it the first time with Boursin cheese and capers as mentioned by the one review and it was delicious!
