Prep Time:15 minutes
Cook Time:15 minutes
Total Time:30 minutes
Yield:12 cups 1x
4.5 oz of smoked salmon
5.5 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup of heavy cream
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp fresh chives
Pinch of salt and pepper
Begin by using a vegetable peeler or small knife to cut strips down the skin of the cucumbers, and then slice the cucumbers into 2 inch slices.
Use a melon baller or a teaspoon, scoop out the flesh in the middle of the cucumber, leaving a small layer at the bottom of each cucumber cup.
Next, grab your food processor and add in ¾ of the smoked salmon, the cream cheese, heavy cream, lemon juice, salt, pepper and chives. Blitz everything for a couple of minutes, until the pâté is smooth.
Then, chop up the remaining ¼ of the smoked salmon into small pieces and add to the pâté. This gives the pâté a little extra texture. Finally, fill each cucumber cup with a dollop of salmon pâté and serve! Alternatively, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
