A few weeks ago I had to take care of the appetizers.  I tried some new things, for example this cucumber – shrimp combination.

Ingredients (16 pieces):

  • 2 cucumbers
  • 200 gram fresh North Sea shrimps
  • 1 tomato
  • 3 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Parsley, chives, salt, pepper


  • Boil the tomato in water for one minute, peel and remove the pits, then cut it into fine pieces.
  • Cut the cucumbers into 4 pieces and cut the pieces then lengthwise in two equal parts.
  • Scoop the cucumbers inside out. Optionally you can slice a small piece from the bottom, to make them more stable.
  • Chop the herbs finely and mix them with the shrimps and the tomato.
  • Make a dressing with lemon juice and sunflower oil.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Mix the dressing under the shrimp salad.
  • Fill the cucumber cups.
