Salmon Mousse

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by mummamills

got this from Australia's greatest cook, Margaret Fulton, my mentor :) Great luncheon dish, or entree, also great for a party, served with crackers. I have made this as individual serves, (muffin size, using paper cups, great for picnics) and in a ring mould, putting the sauce in the centre. I sometimes add a few slices of smoked salmon, when it is on special :) cook time is refridgeration time

Delicious! I am so glad I found this recipe when I did, we are having a heat wave and this was a wonderful cold dinner to make and serve at this time! Personal preference, I reduced the salt by half. Also, being in the US I used 2 envelopes of gelatin and it set up very well.
