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

  1. 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.
