Light and delicious, a huge hit both times I made it! Thought it needed a little more depth so on my second try, I added a little extra Tabasco and used a seasoned salt. Served with thick-cut cucumbers as a low-cal alternative to crackers.

Fabulous! I use poached fresh salmon instead of canned, added a dash of smoked chipolte red pepper instead of Tabasco and sprinlked a bunch of capers on top.

I recentley traveled to England and had a Crab Mousse which I wanted to try and make. I used this recipe and subtituted crab meat for the Salmon. It turned out very good but just a little too Salty. I think next time I'll eliminate the salt and maybe even rinse the crab meat? I'm planning to make it the salmon next time.
