I find myself in awe of all the bloggers out there who continually post. I have been taking another break…not really sure why. Seems like my blogging mojo had gone and done a runner, but I am trying to get it to come back home.
Now I know this is not technically a wordless post but that is actually how it started off…so here is the picture I wanted to post before I got carried away with my thoughts.
My very clever friend Margaret made this for me and another friend for lunch one day. I LOVE invites to Margaret’s house for food. It is always amazing…thank goodness for friends who are great cooks I say !!!!
Salmon & Crab Mousse with Fresh Dill Dressing
220 gram red salmon, drained
220 gram crab, drained
2/3 cup thickened cream
1/2 cup thousand island dressing
1/4 cup chopped pickled onions
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 tablespoon gelatine [one tablespoon of powdered agar agar can be used in place of one tablespoon of powdered gelatine for those us who have given up eating meat and meat products because we love our animal friends way too much to eat them]
2 tablespoons water
Dill Dressing: 1/2 cup sour cream, 2 tablespoons French dressing, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill. Combine all ingredients thoroughly.
Blend salmon, crab, cream, dressing, mustard and onions until smooth.
Sprinkle gelatine over water, dissolve over a pan of hot water, cool and stir into salmon mixture.
Pour mixture into 6 individual serving dishes (1/2 cup capacity).
Refrigerate several hours until set.
Turn onto serving plates and serve with dressing.
