Smoked Salmon Mousse


  • 1 tablespoon green onion or shallots, fine chopped
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1/4 cup unsalted butter, soft (divided)
  • 2 to 5 ounces smoked salmon, boned and flaked
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream, whipped
  • 1 tablespoon vodka


  1. Sauté onion in 2 tablespoons butter in a small skillet until golden. Add salmon, stir and remove from heat.
  2. Place salmon mixture in a blender or food processor. Add sour cream, cream cheese and 1/4 cup softened butter. Blend well.
  3. Add lemon juice and vodka. Blend until smooth and remove to a bowl.
  4. Fold in whipped cream.
  5. Spoon into a mold or a small plastic container and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
  6. Serve chilled, but not cold. (You can dip bottom and sides in warm water to loosen and unmold, inverting onto a serving plate, if you wish.)
