Kamaboko stuffed cucumber bites are cool, crunchy, and creamy. They are equally great for an outdoor summer gathering or on a buffet table.



3 English or Japanese cucumbers

1 5.5-ounce block kamaboko*

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup cream cheese, at room temperature

1 stalk celery, finely chopped (about 1/4 cup)

1 tablespoon scallions, minced plus more for garnish

1/4 teaspoon soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Furikake to garnish, optional


Cut the cucumbers in half, lengthwise. Use a spoon to scrape out the seeds. Lightly salt the cut side and place cut side down in a colander. Set aside to drain.

Using the large holes of a box grater, shred the kamaboko. If you are using imitation crab, pull the crab meat into long shreds then chop into 1/2″ pieces.

Mix the kamaboko with the remaining ingredients.

Lightly dry the cucumbers with paper towel.

Fill each cucumber half with the kamaboko mixture. Slice crosswise into 1″ pieces.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Arrange on a serving platter and garnish with furikake and scallions.


*You can substitute with imitation crab meat.
