This is a great way to serve a gourmet treat to your guests. Spread it on your favorite crackers, bread, veggies -- whatever you like. It's great inside savory tuile shells.

I've been making this recipe for quite a while and always gets good reviews by guests. I omit the roe (I don't think it needs it.) Serving tip to really impress your guests: get the phillo cups in the frozen section and bake as directed on the package. After they have cooled pipe in the salmon mousse into the phillo cups. Top with a little fresh dill. This is a very easy impressive dish for a cocktail party! Read More

My first attempt came out very bland. If I try again then I'll add more and better quality smoked salmon. Read More

Be improve the look of this dish, I lined a small bowl (a large teacup would do) with clingfilm, then with cold smoked salmon, then filled it with the mousse. Then I folded the edges of the smoked salmon over the top, followed by the clingfilm. I chilled the mousse like this, then inverted onto a platter and removed the clingfilm. The result was a beautiful mound of smoked salmon with the delicious mousse inside. Fantastic. Read More

It was the hit of my Christmas party - not one lick left in the dish! Added horseradish as suggested plus a couple of drops of Tabasco and it was irresistible. Thank you. Read More

This was a huge hit! I made this for a huge party I was hosting. I piped the mousse with a pastry bag in slightly cooked phyllo cups and topped with a chive. The guests gobbled these up by the dozen. It does help to have the large cuisinart as I burned out my engine on the mini-prep because I made four batches. Read More

I omitted the lemon juice and added a clove of garlic. Delicious on bagel chips. Read More

Made this and incorporated some suggestions below. Used 2/3rds the cream cheese amount so that the smoked salmon flavor would come through. Used probably about two tablespoons of fresh dill and added a teaspoon of horseradish. Piped into some premade phyllo cups and garnished with another sprig of dill. Very tasty creamy salmon dish. Received several complements and I would definitely make this again. It did honestly only take about 15 minutes to make and I made the mousse the day before refrigerated and then piped into phyllo just before leaving the house just to ensure they kept from getting soggy. I didn't notice that the flavor changed too much overnight one way or the other by the way. Read More

Easy simple and good.. if garnishing with caviar the black ink seems to bleed in Bring out of fridge about 30 mins or so before so it can soften up a tad. Read More
