Quick Salmon Mousse

This dreamy, creamy Salmon Mousse can be whipped up in no time

Last weekend I hosted a baby shower for my dear friend M JvL. The challenge I set myself was to have a table filled with pink foods. One dish I will certainly make again is this incredibly simple and quick Salmon Mousse.

I served this mousse as a healthy canapé on slices of cucumber. But the next day I also discovered that it makes a fabulous sandwich spread.


100g (light) cream cheese
1 tbsp whipping cream
Juice of ½ a lemon
100 g smoked salmon
Salt, pepper
1 cucumber
Optional: capers



  1. Using a blender, mix cream cheese, cream and lemon until smooth.
  2. Slice salmon and add together with salt and pepper.
  3. Refrigerate mousse for at least half an hour (I placed the mousse in a piping bag and refrigerated it overnight).
  4. When you are ready to serve your canapés, slice the cucumber into thin slices.
  5. Using a piping bag decorate the cucumbers.
  6. Optional: add one caper to each canapé.

    You are so clever with your pink party food. I’m sure everyone enjoyed the party with food like that.
