Salmon Mousse

I lied the other day when I said I was deciding between two different recipes from to make.   There was a third ... salmon mousse.

So I made some this morning.  Despite its elegant look, the hardest part is getting the plastic wrap to behave while shoving it into the mold.  Plastic wrap loves glass so much that it stuck to every surface of the mold except where I wanted it.   After finally taming the plastic, the rest was easy-peasy.

For the other 51 weeks of the year, serve with thinly sliced french bread or some other cracker-type substance.  Otherwise, serve on cucumber slices or something else Passover-friendly.  I used Tam-Tam crackers here, originally tossed into the shopping cart on a whim during Passover shopping.  By the way, do you remember The Great Tam-Tam shortage five years ago?  Oy, such a shandeh it was!
