Smoked Salmon Mousse


  • 8 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 c. sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh parsley
  • 4-6 oz. smoked salmon
  • 1 Tbsp. horseradish
  • 1 tsp. dried dill weed
  • 1/2 tsp.  Worcestershire Sauce
  • Garnishes:
  • Chopped hard boiled egg
  • Finely minced red onion
  • Capers drained
  • Pickled ginger for ginger rose garnish


  1. Put the softened cream cheese in mixing bowl and beat with electric mixer until soft. Add in the sour cream, lemon juice, parsley, horseradish, dill weed and Worcestershire sauce. Mix until well blended.
  2. Add the  smoked salmon that you have broken into small pieces to the bowl and mix just until the salmon breaks up and mixes with the other ingredients. Scrape into martini glass or other serving bowl. If using martini glasses put your chopped boiled egg, red onion and capers in separate glasses and arrange around the salmon spread.
  3. Roll up a piece of pickled ginger to make a rose and set inside next to the smoked salmon mousse. I used a small star aspic cutter to cut the star shape out of the side of a red bell pepper.
  4. Serve with crackers and enjoy.  Guest can add whatever topping they want on top of the mousse.
