Sesame Cucumber with Horseradish Salmon Mousse

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Cucumbers are dipped in two colors of sesame seeds and sandwiched with a spicy and creamy salmon mousse to make a stunning presentation. This is a phase 1 appetizer spread that everyone will enjoy.

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):


  • Stir gelatin into warm water in a saucepan over low heat until dissolved. Add 1/4 cup of the sour cream and whisk until smooth. In a food processor, puree the salmon until very smooth, then add to the gelatin mixture along with the horseradish, Tabasco, remaining sour cream and salt and white pepper to taste.
  • Chill the mousse, covered, for 1 hour or until it stiffens.
  • Toast sesame seeds and toss to combine. Peel cucumbers and slice lengthwise into planks 1/4-inch thick, discarding the softest part of the center. Cut planks into squares and sprinkle one side only with sesame seeds. Arrange on platters.
  • Scoop about 1-2 teaspoons of mousse onto each cucumber square, sesame seed side down, and sprinkle with dill leaves. Top with another cucumber square with sesame seed side up. Serve.
