Smoked Salmon Mousse with Caviar

© 2024 |

© 2024 |

These wonderfully sophisticated bite-sized appetizers or snacks are incredibly easy to prepare yet impressive and can be done in 10 minutes. Smoked salmon is delicious and packed with nutrients, vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids. Turning them into a mousse made with cream cheese is even better. Black caviar are optional, but they do add an elegant touch to the appetizers that your family or guests will love. The mousse can be made one day ahead and stored in your fridge. It actually taste better the next day as the flavors have time to develop. If you don't have a pastry bag, put the mousse into a small sealable plastic bag and cut the tip off the corner of the bag. You can also put the mousse in a bowl and serve with vegetables or/and crackers.

  • 1 Cucumber, sliced
  • 150 g Cold smoked salmon
  • 150 g Cream cheese
  • 50 g Crème fraiche
  • 1 Lime, juiced (or juice of half of a lemon)
  • A large pinch of smoked paprika
  • A large pinch of garlic powder
  • Freshly milled black pepper, to taste
  • Black caviar
  • Pink peppercorns
  • Dill
  1. Rinse and dry the cucumber. Cut crossways into 1-1.5cm slices. Place cucumber slices on a serving plate.
  2. Place the smoked salmon, cream cheese, crème fraiche, lime juice, smoked paprika, garlic powder and black pepper in your food processor bowl and blitz until smooth, about 5 minutes, stopping if necessary, to scrape the sides with a spatula.
  3. Transfer the mousse to a pastry bag and pipe it onto cucumber slices Garnish with black caviar, and dill. Crush a couple of pink peppercorns over.

Las cremas me encantan, si son con salmón aún más. Y si quedan tan bonitas como estos bocaditos, el lujo es total.

This smoked salmon mousse on cucumber slices sounds absolutely divine! It's impressive how easy and quick it is to prepare, yet so sophisticated. Nice one Angie

Angie, Great looking appetizer! We aren't fans of caviar and I think that we'd use capers on top instead. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

This is another perfect summer recipe! We have friends coming to dinner next week, and I would love to make this for them as they both love smoked salmon and caviar. You have such creative recipes, Angie! David (C&L)

sherry 24/5/24 07:25

this is my kind of dish angie. I love smoked salmon and caviar! tho i usually buy regular fish eggs as caviar is so expensive :)

David Scott Allen 4/6/24 17:47

@Anonymous I made these the other night for company, and everyone loved them! My one mistake was slicing the cucumbers too thin, as they got a little bit soft and we’re hard to pick up. I know better for the future! The flavors are incredible! David (C&L)
