  1. So easy to make, and so delicious. We had this on gluten free Swedish crisp bread and enjoyed every bite of it. Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for ZWT 9 / Scandinavia for The Apron String Travelers
  2. Finger-licking goodness! We have the most amazing smoked trout here in Costa Rica and this was the perfect showcase for it. Made the recipe exactly as written except I added a small dollop of natilla, a Costa Rican crème-fraiche that is rich and velvety. This was perfect for the Scandinavian brunch we shared with neighbors. Thanks for posting, teammate! Made for team Gourmet Goddesses, ZWT9
  3. I made this as part of a Scandinavian buffet meal and it was very well received. I added a tbsp of sour cream. Delicious! I will make it again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
  4. I love this trout mousse and I have made it twice so far. It's so quick and it's delicious! I use about half of the amount of lemon juice and maybe a little bit more cream than the stated amount. It's nice with crackers, but I also liked it as a baked potato topping. Another great recipe from wonderful Evelyn. Thanks, Ev!
  5. This was a big hit at our neighborhood get-together. It was very creamy and rich! My husband and daughter do a lot of trout fishing together, so we always have smoked trout available. I ended up using about 1/4 cup more cream to get the consistency I was looking for, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly.My husband wants me to make this up and make him sandwiches out of it! Great recipe. I made this for Zaar World Tour 06.


<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
