Smoked Haddock Mousse

An Ideal Recipe for Entertaining

Recipe by  

Smoked Haddock Mousse is a simple little starter that can be made well in advance and leave you free to prepare a more complex main course. This delightful mousse is anchored in the beauty, simplicity and vibrancy of the fish. There are many smoke houses dotted around the coastline and these are certainly the places to find the highest quality fish. However, if like most of us, you are short on time and on a budget head to your local shops where you will likely find an array of affordable fresh smoked haddock fillets.

How to Cook Smoked Haddock Mousse

Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice then fold in the flaked fish. Whisk the cream until it is thick and fold it into the mixture, then season with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
