    KauaiCarolAnn's Note:

    I have been making these for years. Another fast, easy and tasty pupu. The "stuffing" really does need to sit and marinate for a while so make it the morning of or no more then 12 hours before serving. Otherwise it becomes a runny mess. The website did not recognize the words Japan or seedless - but I usually use the longer slim Japanese or seedless variety.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    boats

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut about 2+1/2 inches off each end of cucumber (assuming you are using the Japan or seedless, since they are typically rather long).
    2. 2
      Grate the ends using a hand grater & place into a fine mesh strainer.
    3. 3
      Cut the cucumbers in half, then again lengthwise.
    4. 4
      Scoop out seeds so you have four boats & run the bottom side of boat across a grater. This creates a flat bottom so the boat doesn't rock. Save the shavings & rough chop into the grated cuc ends from above.
    5. 5
      The longer you let the cucumber strain, the drier the stuffing will be, I usually wait about 30 minutes.
    6. 6
      Remove grated cuc from the strainer, add to bowl.
    7. 7
      Add 2oz feta, white pepper and dill weed. Stir gently.
    8. 8
      Chill at least a couple hours but no longer than 12 hours.
    9. 9
      Wipe the boats dry (makes the stuffing easier) and place stuffing inside.
    10. 10
      Garnish: black lava sea salt & dots of sriracha mixed with mayo.
    11. 11
      You can also slice into smaller bite sized "U's" if you refrigerate after stuffing to re-firm the feta/cuc mixture.
    12. 12
      Prep time does not include refrigerator marinade time.
