There’s no cooking involved with this recipe, but you can cut the cucumber in ribbons and mix the cream cheese filling a few hours before your guests arrive. Find a volunteer to schmear and roll the cukes into perfect party canapés. Then line them up like soldiers and add a flourish of lox and roe.

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Using a mandoline or a vegetable peeler, thinly slice the cucumbers on two sides to obtain 24 strips. Set aside. Keep the cores for another use.
  2. In a bowl, combine the cream cheese and jalapeno. Lightly season with salt and pepper.
  3. Spread a thin layer of the cream cheese mixture onto the length of the cucumber strips. Place a dill frond at one end of each strip, letting it slightly hang over the edge. Tightly roll up the strips.
  4. Arrange the rolls upright on a serving platter. Top with the smoked salmon and, if desired, the mullet roe.

Note

Mullet roe can be found at most fish shops and is an excellent alternative to caviar.
