Smoked Salmon Mousse

Pale pink swirls of smoked salmon mousse piped onto single cucumber slices, each garnished with a green sprig of dill and served on an individual plate.

Smoked salmon mousse is a wonderfully tasty way to serve leftover smoked salmon on a fishing trip. This uses hot smoked salmon, not the cured smoked salmon style sometimes known as lox.

The leftover salmon is combined with cream cheese to make the mousse. It can be rustic and chunky or fancy and smooth, but the latter would require a blender.

The smoked salmon mousse can be served in a variety of ways, not just on the cucumber as shown here. The mousse could top crackers or crostini. It can also be served more as a dip with cucumber, crackers, or other raw vegetable sticks.
