Recipe: Cucumber Cups Stuffed with Spicy Crab


Spicy Crab Cucumber CupsRecently I attended a Ladies Night Out pARTy as a guest of hostess and artist Tracey J. Marshall. Our session was “Poppies Galore,” Acrylic and charcoal, with a watercolor feel. Sounds fun right?

All I needed to to was bring something to eat, something to drink and my creative spirit! And for those of you who know me, know that I LOVE to paint, but never make the time to unless it is a birthday, holiday or for my own home.  When Tracey invited me I simply could not resist!

Thankfully I remembered my DIY Food board at Pinterest and was easily inspired by these Cucumber Cups Stuffed with Spicy Crab by Domestic Fits. Now mine are no where near as pretty – but they are *definitely spicy.

I changed the original recipe to suit my taste and I recommend you do the same. If you don’t like HOT – reduce the amount I have listed by half.


Time :

Start to finish about an hour


What you will need :

4 seedless cucumbers

1/2 cup sour cream

1 8oz. package of cream cheese, softened

1 cup crab meat, patted dry and diced (Vegetarian substitution : tofu)

2 tsp hot pepper sauce (I used my Hawthorne Hotel Hotsauce)

2 tsp yellow mustard

Salt and pepper to taste

1 tbsp Savory Spice Shop Herbes de Provence

1/4 cup minced green onion (save green tips as garnish)


Directions :

Peel cucumbers and cut off ends

Cut cucumbers into 8 sections (6 depending on size) making sure to average 3/4″ sections

With a melon baller, carefully scoop out center, making sure NOT to puncture bottom

Set cucumber “cups” aside on a large serving dish

Mix remainder ingredients thoroughly with a wire potato masher

Spoon mixture into cucumber “cups”

Garnish with paprika and chives

Serve with chilled Prosecco
