I begged this recipe from a former co-worker who got it from her mother who lives in San Diego. Lovely taste. Nice presentation, the tomato soup makes you believe it's Salmon.

Delicious and very easy as far as molds go. I would advise to not be quite as generous with the cooking spray, as it may turn out a bit greasy. If you're really having trouble unmolding it, try the dipping-in-hot-water trick. Make sure you chop that celery and onion super fine to not interfere with the smooth texture of the mousse.
