Spicy Crab Cucumber Cups

Crab Stuffed Cucumber Cups

I always serve little bite sized appetizers when I invite my friends over for hangouts, and these never last very long at the table. You can change around the ingredients here… once I added japanese seaweed (nori), for a little crunch. Or why not make them extra creamy by adding sour cream. Whichever way you decide to make them, you really can’t go wrong. Have fun, and get creative!

Ingredients:

  • 1 package pollack crab (chopped)
  • 2 cucumbers (peeled)
  • Ā ~2 Tbsp mayonaise (more or less)
  • ~1 tsp thai spicy sauce (more or less)
  • 2 tsp chopped dill
  • salt & pepper
  • (optional: capers)
  • (optional: + 1 tsp dijon mustard)
  • (optional: nori)
  • (optional: + 1 Tbsp sour cream)

Directions:

Peel cucumbers, then chop approximately into 1 inch ‘bites’. Scoop out seeds. In separate bowl, add remaining ingredients, mix. Add spoonfuls into cucumber. Serve!

  1. Believe it or not, I never liked cucumber (but I love pickles)… until about a week ago! Now that I’ve tried it again, I really like it. I bet crab and cucumber are awesome together – I mean, who doesn’t love a california roll? šŸ™‚

      • This sounds crazy but I just had fresh cucumber slices in a baby kale salad. There was seriously nothing unique or special about them – in fact, they couldn’t have been any plainer. I think I just loved how fresh and light they were. Then, this past weekend I was playing around and made theeeee most delicious Asian-inspired cold cucumber salad with vinegar and EVOO. I’ll definitely be making it again soon so I can take pictures this time and share it!

  2. What a fun tapas. I love the color of the dressed crab against the green of the cucumber. The crisp crunch of the cucumber must be refreshing after the spicy crab.

  3. WOW as I sit here feeling hungry I checked out this recipe. I looks really yummy. I love cucumbers and I love seafood. This looks like a great snacking food packed with vitamins that I definately need. šŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing.
