  • Fresh salmon mousse. In this case, use a salmon fillet of about 200 g, peel it and remove the bones and let it steam for about 20 minutes . Once cooked, grind it and use it as in the original recipe.
  • Finally, you can easily make a salmon mousse without cream, all you have to do is omit it and mix the fish only with the herbs and the spreadable cheese. To make the consistency more creamy you can add, if necessary, a few teaspoons of milk or water.
