Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove 2 tablespoons crab meat for garnish, if desired. Place the remaining crab, cream cheese, mayonnaise, mustard, shallots, horseradish, cayenne pepper and salt (if using salt) in a food processor bowl; cover and process until smooth, scraping sides of bowl. Spoon mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip.
  2. Using a zester or vegetable peeler, peel the cucumbers, leaving some strips of skin. Cut into 3/4 inch thick slices (or halve 2 cucumbers lengthwise and slice 3/4 inch thick). With a melon baller, scoop out the center of each slice to create a cup. Pipe mousse into cucumber cups. Garnish each with reserved crab meat, if desired. Cover and chill up to 2 hours before serving.
