Lord Grantham's Salmon Mousse with Dill


  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin, (from a 1/4-ounce envelope)
  • 5 ounces smoked salmon, chopped
  • 1  cups sour cream
  •  2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Fresh cracked pepper
  • crackers or baguette slices, for serving


  1. Place 3 tablespoons cold water in a small saucepan, and sprinkle with gelatin; let soften, 5 minutes. Gently heat over low, stirring, just until gelatin dissolves; set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, combine salmon, sour cream, and lemon juice. Puree until smooth; season with pepper . With the processor running, add the slightly cooled gelatin mixture, and blend until combined.
  3. Pour into two 8-ounce ramekins or bowls. Without touching surface, cover container with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until firm but spreadable, about 2 hours or up to overnight. Garnish mousse with dill, if desired, and serve with crackers or baguette slices.
