Spicy Crab-Stuffed Cucumber

Hey Friends! Sorry for my lack of posting yesterday but I have been working diligently on the backend of this site. You the only difference you may have noticed thus far is that you are now being redirected to natalieparamore.com!!! Woohoo I bought my domain!! Other changes will be made later and most of them should not effect how you use this site.

Moving along, last night I served up these little bites as appetizers at my Valentine’s Day dinner. I hope you all enjoy these!

You’ll need:
2 cucumbers

Spicy brown mustard
Green onions
Lemon juice
Pepper
Salt

Make sure all the excess water is removed from your crab meat. Then combine with the Greek yogurt in a mixing bowl.

Add a few shakes of Tabasco. Add more if you like spice!

Add somewhere between a teaspoon and a tablespoon of spicy brown mustard.

Add a teaspoon of kosher salt and some black pepper to taste. Squeeze in the juice of a fresh lemon.

Mix all of that up and set aside.

Wash the cucumbers and peel them leaving stripes of skin to keep them together once we stuff them.

Slice the cucumber. Make sure there is room to make these little cups so we can stuff them with the crab meat. About an inch and half thick.

Use a melon baller to scoop out the seeds and soft inner part. Leave the edges thick so they can hold the can meat.
