Cucumber Stuffed Shrimp and Cream Cheese Bites Yum
  1. Using a vegetable peeler, scrape of 1/2-inch of the cucumber skins down the length of the cucumber. Repeat around the cucumber, leaving a 1/2-inch space with skin on in between each peeled section.
  2. Cut 1/2-inch of each end off and discard. Cut cucumbers into 1-inch slices going down the length of the cucumber.
  3. Using a knife, gently core out the seeded meat in the center of each cucumber piece and discard. Lay the cucumbers on a serving tray.
  4. Place cream cheese in a medium bowl and using a hand mixer, beat the cheese until it becomes soft and spreadable.
  5. Spoon the cream cheese into a plastic sandwich bag and push the spread towards one of the corners. Cut off the end of the bag approximately 1/2-inch so the spread can push through the opening.
  6. Squeeze enough cream cheese into the center of the cucumbers to fill it in going slightly over the top.
  7. Press one shrimp into the cream cheese on each cucumber with the tail end towards the top.
  8. Sprinkle the cucumber bites with paprika and sea salt. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
