Smoked salmon mousse
Salmon is by far my favorite fish and I often serve it as an appetizer. I like that’s it so diverse. You can fry it, steam it, poach it, smoke it, mousse it…and that’s what I did last night when we had a couple of friends over for dinner and a card game. I made a mousse with smoked salmon and skyr. Skyr is an Icelandic cultured dairy product similar to strained yogurt. High in protein and low in fat and carbs. If you can’t find skyr, you could just use sour cream or yogurt.
It’s a great appetizer to make ahead so you can focus on the main course or the dessert.
I had made a large portion, and we had a lot left over. Never a bad thing! So we had smoked salmon mousse for lunch today, yum.
