Asian Salmon Mousse

If your are looking for a quick fix appetizer for a party and you like salmon... this mousse recipe is right up your alley. I made this Asian Salmon Mousse in a matter of minutes and let the fridge do the work to set it up.  It was a lovely creamy mousse and my kids, mother and nephew really enjoyed it so much they cleaned out my bowl.  We ate it with crackers and even on some toasted bread and it was delicious both ways. I think this would make a perfect appetizer for any party and the best part is you get it done ahead of time.

1 (6oz) can of good quality boneless skinless salmon
1 bunch of green scallions (greens and whites separated)
1/2 inch of grated fresh ginger
1 large clove of fresh garlic grated
1 green chili sliced  (seeded if you prefer less heat)
black pepper to taste
1/4 red onion chopped
1 (8oz) package of plain cream cheese (at room temperature
2 Tbs of mayonnaise
1-2 tsp of soy sauce

In a saute pan add 1 tsp of canola oil.  Saute the onion, scallion whites, ginger, garlic and green chili. When onions soften add the drained can of salmon and soy sauce.  Taste for seasoning. Allow mixture to cool before proceeding.

 In a food processor add the room temperature cream cheese, cooled salmon mixture and mayonnaise.  Blend until well incorporated and smooth.  Place mousse mixture in serving dish and cover.  Place in refrigerator overnight. Top with greens of scallions and serve with crackers.  Enjoy.

  1. The title is so intriguing that I couldn't click fast enough to see this mousse. It's fabulous! I love that you went the savory route. Thank you so much for participating in the challenge, Ramona! xo

  2. OOO yes please. What a great dish for the summer for a snack!

  3. Wow, it looks so, so good. I would probably prefer this to a sweet mousse anyhow since I'm a salty/savory person. Great job on hitting the challenge dead on. I'm glad the whole family liked it. That says a lot.

  4. I didn't realise savoury mousses were possible but yours looks just as delicious as a sweet one my friend :D


  5. Wow,,,never have savory mousse,perfect dip with crackers,very creative post,,YUm,,Yum !!

  6. Great idea to go the savory route--I've had these before, but didn't know how to make them. It's salmon season in Alaska, so I'm all over this.

  7. Yum, sounds delicious. I like that you went the savory route for something different.

  8. My mom used to make something like this when I was a kid to bring to parties and pot lucks. I'm sending her the link to your recipe so she can see your Asian twist. I bet she'd love to try that!

  9. certainly did a great job meeting this challenge! I'm glad you went savory because I'm always looking for easy party dips and this definitely looks easy! Since I have that exact salmon in the pantry I know how good the salmon is so the dip... well, I might have to ask why on earth would I want to share it!? :)

  10. A savory mousse! YUM! This one must be tried. :)

  11. I love that there is no gelatin in it.
