- Beat the cream cheese with the sour cream, stir in crab, dill, mustard and season to taste.
- Spoon into moulds, fold over overhanging salmon, then fold over the plastic wrap to cover. Chill at least 3 hours. Can be made 24 hours ahead!
Very nice - although I added some creamed horseradish and a few drops of tabasco instead of the mustard. Used more dill and also added some chopped capers with the shrimp. I don't have enough ramekins, and wanted something a little smaller anyway, so used my 12 hole bun tin. Placed a sprig of dill and a shrimp on each to serve (or faux caviar would be nice) and served with Melba toast and some dressed salad leaves.
