Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound smoked salmon
  • 8 ounces soft cream cheese
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream or half-and-half
  • 2 English cucumbers
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped dill

Directions

In food processor, chop up salmon into a paste. Add cream cheese, salt and pepper, and heavy cream to make a mixture loose enough to pipe out into cucumber boats. Peel cucumbers and halve lengthwise. Slice cucumbers into 2-inch lengths. Use melon baller to scoop out the cucumber to make into small boat-shapes. Spoon salmon mixture into pastry bag fitted with a star tip, and pipe mixture into each cucumber "boat." Garnish with fresh dill.
