For a fun and tasty appetizer or finger food, this is a cute little twist on the term ‘Fish and Chips‘ that uses Smoked Salmon as the fish and packaged potato chips.
Smoked Salmon Mousse5 1 5 1
Smoked Salmon Mousse is a wonderfully tasty way to serve leftover smoked salmon on a fishing trip. Serve on cucumber or as a tasty dip with chips.
This recipe is something a little bit different for when you have smoked salmon and is definitely a show off dish for camping but is surprisingly easy.
It was used as an extra-category for a BBQ competition so don’t feel you need to get fancy and pipe the mousse like I did. Serving as a dip works just fine.
1 hand size fillet of hot smoked salmon, chilled
1/2 lemon, juiced
100g (or nearest packaged amount) cream cheese
1 small cucumber, sliced in rings
dill, to garnish (optional)
pimping bag, optional
Break the chilled, smoked salmon down into small pieces, then crush with a fork.
(If you are camping with an RV or power, you may have a blender that you can use. Camping you can use one of those manual hand blender gadgets ‘as shown on tv’.)
Combine the salmon with the lemon juice and the cream cheese. Taste then adjust with extra lemon, salt and/or pepper to your preferred taste.
Prepare the cucumber to serve. This can be slices to pipe or dollop the smoked salmon mousse onto, or simply slice into sticks to dip into the smoked salmon mousse.
(Who takes cucumber fishing? Just exchange the cucumber for any of your favorite dipping foods like crackers, crisps or other longer lasting vegetables like carrot or celery.)
