The recipe that goes with the previous post!

I am at my parents' house again this evening as my father is taking me to Heathrow airport tomorrow morning. He has written out the Salmon Mousse recipe for you so I thought I would quickly put it on the blog especially for those who need it quickly for this weekend!!

Smoked salmon mousse (for 8) (apologies for those in USA or Europe as these measurements are all in 'imperial' - hopefully you will have a recipe book which translate!)
  • 3 fl.oz white wine
  • bay leaf
  • 5 fl.oz fish or chicken stock
  • 1.5 tbsp crushed black pepper
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • small squeeze tomato puree
  • 8oz smoked salmon minced
  • 8 fl. oz double cream
  • 7 oz yoghurt
  • small pack (half ounce) gelatine powder
  • 3 fl oz water
  • tsp. oil

Boil wine, bayleaf, stock, pepper, cayenne and lemon juice rapidly for 3 to 4 minutes until reduced by half. Pour through a fine sieve and stir in tomato puree. Mix this liquid into the minced salmon. Whip the cream until stiff and fold the yoghurt in. Fold the cream / yoghurt mix into the salmon. Dissolve the gelatine in the water. Allow it to cool and then stir into the salmon mixture. Lightly oil a loaf tin and pour in the mixture. Allow to set in the fridge and then before serving run a knife round the edge and turn out and decorate as you wish with parsley/lemon/cucumber etc... ENJOY!

I probably won't have time again to blog or comment before I leave and so the next one will be when I return to Australia... Meanwhile you could check out my blogging friend That's Not My Age 's post - for a last fleeting look at the Semi Expat cottage!! (That's Not My Age is featured in the British Press and has a wonderful blog - you would be mad not to follow her ).

  7. Oh, yum. In another life I had a recipe for saumon mousse, but nothing like yours. Can't wait to try it.

    Sorry I've been so remiss in my visits. You know it's not because I don't think of you.


  8. Hi Sarah - thanks for the recipe - will be trying it out v. soon! Thinking of you about to succumb once more to the dreaded 'J.L' - I've been in Sydney for ten days now and am only just beginning to feel 'normal' - will be thinking of you & looking forward to hearing that you have arrived safe and sound...x

    Susie... hello, hello - we are now in the same country again - am here safely and this - Day 1, I am feeling 'Not Too Bad' - but I will whisper it in case the dreaded JL comes and bites me!! If you want to visit Melbourne there is a bed here for you and I will let you know if I am coming to Sydney before end May.. Hope you are having a great visit here. x
