Maple Salmon Cucumber Boats

28 Jun

Having friends over for dinner and wanted to come up with a new healthy appetizer. It is fun to cook for people who are like minded eaters. I had  once at a sushi restaurant cucumber boats with eel and liked them very much. Eel sauce is sweet and would not do today. Since I was making appetizers, and we were having red wine, I needed little spice to pair fish and red wine. This was easy enough. I think I will have these for lunch or dinner one day.

  • 2 cans of atlantic salmon, drained
  • 2 tbs maple syrup
  • 1 tsp chopped green onion
  • 1 glove of garlic, pressed
  • 3 tsp prepared kimchi sauce or other spicy sauce
  • 1 tbs fat free mayo or greek yogurt
  • mini cucumbers, cut in halves length wise and seeded
  • sliced green onion for decoration

Mix all of the top ingredients together, chill. Prepare the cucumbers and fill them with the salmon mixture, decorate with sliced green onion. Keep cool until serving time.

    Nice idea … I’d like to try that Kimchi sauce.
