Recipe Friday - Seafood Cucumber Stacks

Canada Day is next week so why not throw a party and serve yummy appetizers? Here's a fun one that reminds me of sushi, but way easier to make, and without the raw fish. These look like a lot of work, but they're not, so they're perfect to make when you want to "look" like a better chef than you really are :)

Seafood Cucumber Stacks


1/2 cup light cream cheese, softened
1 bunch chives, finely chopped, divided
Zest and 1 tablespoon juice from 1 lemon
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 (4-ounce) package Smoked Salmon OR 4 ounces smoked trout OR 8 ounces crab meat OR
12 medium peeled, deveined and halved cooked shrimp
1 seedless cucumber, cut into 24 slices


In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, half of the chives, lemon zest and juice, salt and pepper. If using salmon or trout, cut into 24 bite-sized pieces. Arrange a piece of seafood on each cucumber slice then top with a dollop of sour cream mixture and garnish with remaining chives.
