    Elly in Canada's Note:

    The owner of the Clair de Lune restaurant located in the heart of Ottawa's Byward Market in Ontario served this to his many well-known patrons; when he retired and closed his restaurant he shared this famous recipe, a favourite of our late prime minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau.

      C'est formidable ! This was AMAZING! I made it EXACTLY as posted with one small exception, I like my rillettes to be packed into a jar and not made into a smooth pate type texture, so I left the mixture rough, as rillettes are in France. The flavours were beautiful, and both types of salmon still retained their individual flavours. This is a recipe which I will be making many times in the future; I DO have my own smoked fish rillettes recipe, but this one is a little different - so between the two that will cover most dinner parties, celebratory meals and picnics! Made for PAC spring 2008. Elly, this was beautiful, thanks! FT:-)
