Shrimp Salad in Cucumber Cups Heather in SF
this made 25 cups - a little messy to eat but so good!

3 English cucumbers
3/4 lb fresh cocktail shrimp
2 t chopped chives
1 t chopped tarragon (1 large sprig)
2 T chopped parsley
~2 T mayonnaise
squirt of lemon juice
ground black pepper to taste
25 pretty parsley leaves for garnish

To make the cucumber cups - peel and cut cucumber into 2" pieces. With a grapefruit spoon, carefully carve out center of the slice to make a cup, being careful not to pierce the bottom. let drain upside down on a paper towel. Can be made ahead and stored with a damp paper towel in a zippy bag.

Mix together the shrimp and herbs (done all together in a mini chop) with the mayo and a squirt of lemon juice. Spoon into cucumber cups and garnish with a parsley leaf.

These went quickly at the party!

I'd also like to try filling these with a poke tuna salad - or my friends wanted to drink sake out of them - which is the original purpose of them from a cooking show I saw on the Style channel last year.
