  • Ingredients
  • 100g Scottish smoked salmon trimmings
  • 1/2 egg white
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 3 x 1.5g gelatine leaves
  • 25ml brandy
  • 284ml carton double cream
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 8 long slices of Scottish smoked salmon
  • Peeled cucumber strips, lemon and olive oil dressing and fresh dill, to serve


    1. Put the salmon trimmings into a food processor and whizz for 1 minute. Add the egg white, cayenne pepper and some salt and whizz for a few seconds more. Chill the mixture for 10 minutes in the processor bowl.
    2. Meanwhile, soak the gelatine leaves in cold water for 4 minutes. Warm the brandy in a small pan. Lift the gelatine out of the water, add to the brandy and leave to dissolve. Keep warm.
    3. Return the processor bowl to the machine and, with the motor running, slowly add the cream, then the brandy. Transfer to a bowl and gradually beat in the lemon juice. Season and chill for up to 1 hour, until softly set and holding its shape.
    4. Put 1 slice of smoked salmon on a piece of cling film. Spoon some of the mousse along 1 short edge, carefully roll up and wrap in the cling film. Repeat with the remaining salmon. Chill for 1 hour to firm up.
    5. To serve, unwrap the salmon rolls and put onto plates. Pile some cucumber strips alongside. Drizzle with a lemon and olive oil dressing and garnish with dill.

Hi Fran, we made this last Saturday (not as a roll but in a special ceramic fish form) and it tasted wonderful! Be assured we will make this more than once!
