    FLKeysJen's Note:

    I saw Martha make this on the Today show and it looks super easy to make, and healthy too - if you opt for light sour cream. Cooking time is chilling time.

      This was very easy to make, I agree with the other reviewers, a little bit too much lemon juice. This makes a lot of spread, but I think they would be great with bagels. Still a great recipe. Thank you.

      Made this the day ahead for "pre-dinner" nibbles. Only had a salmon steak in the freezer and bought cream cheese instead of sour cream and I wasn't fighting my way thru the supermarket again !!! The small amount of gelatine is just sufficient to 'hold' the mousse together, I cut the lemon juice down to 1 tablespoon and added a 'smidgeon' of horseraddish to give it some 'oooomph'. It was delicious, had a lovely light texture and none of the flavours overpowered, I sprinkled the top with fresh chopped dill just before serving with melba toast and crackers. Thankyou for sharing this super simple, practical and tasty recipe.

      Pretty good, nice flavor depending on the smoked salmon you use and a nice consistency. This recipe makes quite a bit though, you could easily half the recipe and still have enough for lots of crackers. I piped this onto crackers for a party I had, made about three dozen crackers and still have two thirds of the mousse I made left over.
