Tena Perryman


Butter or mayonnaise, for greasing mold
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water and 1/2 cup boiling water, for gelatin
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon grated onion
2 drops hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups poached or smoked salmon, flaked into small pieces
2 tablespoons capers drained
1 cup whipped cream

Grease a 6-cup fish mold with butter or mayonnaise.

Soften the gelatin in 1/4 cup cold water. Add 1/2 cup boiling water and stir well, until the gelatin has dissolved.

Add the mayonnaise, lemon juice, lime juice, onion, hot sauce, paprika, and salt and mix well. Fold in the salmon and capers. Add the whipped cream and continue folding until everything is well combined. Pour the mixture into the prepared mold. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight.

When ready to serve, unmold the mousse onto a large plate, surround with shredded lettuce, and make an “eye” for the fish with a slice of pimento stuffed olive.

Serve with crackers, pita crisps, and/or party pumpernickel bread slices.
