Blanch cucumbers in boiling water for 30 seconds.

Boil orange shreds for 3 minutes in water. Drain, refresh and dry.
Spoon the sweet chutney into the center of each cucumber case.
Mix all other ingredients with the shellfish (Substitute it with butter sauteed mushrooms if you are a vegetarian), season well and pile into the center of the cucumber.
