- Stir geliten into boiled water and add cold water. Cool.
- To the Geletin, add the mayo, lemon juice, grated onion, and tobasco.
- Chill to a jelling consistancy.
- Add drained salmon and capers to the jell and beat well.
- In a seperate bowl, beat whipping cream and paprika and blend into jell mixture.
- Turn into a loaf pan and refrigerate.
- Beat egg, sugar, pepper, lemon juice, dill weed and onion,
- Blend in sour cream and serve cold over mousse.
- For a larger portion, I repeat the recipe and use Pink Salmon
instead of the white salmon. I then add to the top of the
already made mousse. When it is sliced the top is pink and
the bottom is white. I sometimes make this for a light luncheon.
Slice and serve with dill sauce.
