A smoked salmon mousse is made by mixing cream cheese, cream, lemon juice and finely chopped salmon, then piped into cherry tomatoes. Yes, they are pretty fiddly, but the end result is worth it. They are perfect for handing around before dinner.
This sounds wonderful. I'll be taking this to a potluck in a couple of days..... I'll post back later how it all came together and how the PUPU (Hawaiian for appetizer) whet over! I'll rate this at 5 stars to start with just because it sounds so yummy! Well I fixed this for a potluck last night. I found it difficult to clean the pulp out of the cherry tomatoes and very time consuming. I tried to mince the salmon into as small a chunks as possible but it still wasn't fine enough to go through the biggest tip of my pastry bag. I ended up using a plastic bag with a corner cut off. I did use a about 4oz. of salmon as that was what was in the jar and used about 1/4tsp of black pepper. The taste was mild and I think next time I would spice them up a bit with finely chopped olives, jalapeno, and a 1/2tsp of salt. This would be great as a vegetable dip if you didn't want to mess with all those little tomatoes! I'm lowering it to 4 stars because of the prep time. - 05 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I gave this 3 stars for the idea, but read the reviews and could tell the mousse would be a little shy on flavor. So I took the tomato idea and ran with it. I have posted what I did as Smoked Salmon mousse tomato tartlet's. Brought them to a party and they were a big hit. - 11 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These were fantastic the filling is delicous. yes the gutting of the tomatoes is messy and time consuming but it is well worth it. - 03 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
