Smoked Salmon Cucumber Cups

"From the November issue of Australian Tables Magazine. These appear to be light a delicious but unfortunately I am the only one in the family that likes cucumber and smoked salmon so I cannot see me having the opportunity to make these, so times are an estimate. HANDY HINT - prepare salmon filling and scooped out cucumber cups ahead of time, refrigerate and fill just before serving."

    Delicious and very elegant... love smoked salmon and cucumber is always so refreshing. I had made appetisers using a cucumber slices as a base before but had not scooped out a section to make cups. A neat idea! The trouble with a cucumber slice as a base (as opposed to creating a cup) is that the topping so easily slides off! Great blend of flavours. The friends who had dropped arround for the evening really enjoyed these - and wanted the recipe! We enjoyed them too so I'll certainly be making them again. Thanks for sharing another super recipe, Pat. Made for PRMR.

    These were very good and pretty easy to make. The flavor was good, the next time I think I would add more mint and dill. Also, for everyday use, I think I wouldn't bother with the cucumber cups and just make the filling. The cups are nice if you were to take them to a potluck.

    Made for the Safari Supper Club *Pet Parade* event, I served these tasty bites of smoked salmon goodness as part of an impressive relish platter when my MIL joined us for dinner tonite & they were what made it impressive. She does not speak English & I speak just enough Icelandic to be dangerous, but she had no trouble letting me know how much she liked them. They are such an easy fix & I would not chg a thing about this recipe. Thx for sharing it w/us. :-)


With the demise of the forums and with no more interaction on site with what was a great community and it was a pleasure to get to know so many of you over the years and to have had the privilege of meeting some of you in person. For me now this is just another recipe site like to many on the net, it has lost its specialness, such a pity especially when Scripps changed the name from Recipezaar to and made this statement sorry cannot replicate here as considered invalid but they basically said yes the community was valuable hence .com was short for community but it was a pack of lies as they were not willing to put the money into that community and got rid of the forums which was the community so for .com has become .crap.
