Smoked Salmon Mousse

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by dawnie2u

I have used regular canned salmon and added a little liquid smoke when I was unable to find canned smoked salmon. You could substitute hot smoked flaked salmon for the canned.

A lovely light salmon mousse which I have tested out before I serve them to guests tonight! I used fresh smoked salmon, as I have never seen tinned smoked salmon - but I did add a tin of cooked pink salmon to bulk it up with! I also used low fat creme fraiche as I though the recipe was quite rich already - from what I have tasted whilst I was making this - it is a lovely, light and zingy salmon mousse!
