Speedy Smoked Salmon Mousse


This recipe adhere’s to the infamous KISS principle, “keep it short and sweet.”

I’m pressed for time right now, preparing for Christmas and the visit of my family from down south. In need of a speedy but impressive something to serve with champagne I put the food processor on the bench, emptied a whole packet of Tassal smoked salmon trimmings sold for cooking into the bowl, pureed it with a little cream into a thick and unctuous mousse then lightened the flavour with a squeeze of lemon juice. Done.

It tasted unbelievably good spread on crackers.

Smoked Salmon Mousse

200g smoked salmon

150ml lactose free cream

good grinding of white pepper

lemon juice to taste

Empty the salmon into your food processor and pulse the motor until the salmon is finely chopped.

Slowly add the cream with the motor running continuously.

Add pepper and lemon juice to taste.

Pile into a pretty bowl and garnish will a lemon and dill.

Serve with good quality crackers

    Far too long ago to divulge,I had a recipe for salmon mousse and it was very well received. The salmon wasn’t smoked, however, and I really like that idea, Sandra. Now, I could spend half a day looking for that recipe or I could just use the one that you so generously shared with us. No contest. Thanks, Sandra.

    yum! Much simpler than my version which also has cold poached salmon mixed through it. Will be making this over Christmas!

    I was always told it was short and stupid too..your acronym meaning is much nicer. Salmon mousse and fizzy wine, now that’s a Chrissy treat Mrs R.

      My real definition of KISS is the same as every one else’s, I think my effort to be PC back fired. I need no excuse to enjoy bubbles….

    Oh dear: I must have been very badly brought up ’cause always thought KISS meant ‘keep it simple stupid’ 😀 !! Same idea anyways! This could not be simpler or of purer flavour: lovely! And Stefan is quite right about using the Tassal offcuts [at a fraction of the price of slices etc] for pasta sauces – I am afraid I have no hesitation about making an open sandwich or wrap with the product either . . . happy Yule cooking . . .

      Ha, my definition of KISS was an effort to be PC and tie up my short post and simple recipe. Enjoy….

    Having just cold smoked some salmon, I can see leftovers in my future for which this will be a great use. I think that this mousse could also be served over pasta 🙂
