Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin, (from a 1/4-ounce envelope)
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon, coarsely chopped
  • 1 1/4 cups sour cream
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • coarse salt
  • fresh dill, for garnish (optional)
  • crackers or baguette slices, for serving

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Place 3 tablespoons cold water in a small saucepan, and sprinkle with gelatin; let soften, 5 minutes. Gently heat over low, stirring, just until gelatin dissolves; set aside.

  2. Step 2

    In the bowl of a food processor, combine salmon, sour cream, and lemon juice. Puree until smooth; season with salt. With motor running, add slightly cooled gelatin mixture, and blend until combined.

  3. Step 3

    Pour into two 8-ounce ramekins or bowls. Without touching surface, cover container with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until firm but spreadable, about 2 hours or up to overnight. Garnish mousse with dill, if desired, and serve with crackers or baguette slices.

    I just made this and although it was good I would suggest using 6 oz smoked salmon, a big pinch of kosher salt and go easy on the lemon juice - 2 T was too much for my liking - I will use 1T next time. Otherwise...... easy to make and with more salmon and less lemon it should be delicious.

    This is too easy to be so good. I got many compliments when I served this as part of a tea party.
