I made this for a dinner party and everyone loved it. I addded grated lemon peel to the spinach mousse that gave it an added flavor boost. I might add a bit more spice next time, like perhaps some cayenne pepper. This was very simple to make and makes a lovely presentation. I added chopped chives and paprika to the top of the suace before serving, which gave needed color. I served it along side beef tenderloin with wild rice and roasted carrots. As I had two main course items I only served one sole fillet per person. If this will be the only main dish plan on two fillets per person. I ended up with a lot of left over mousse mixture so next time I may try halving the mousse recipe. Thanks for posting. It was delicious.
