Step 1

Place 100g of the smoked salmon in a food processor with the butter and process until smooth.

Step 2

Soak gelatine leaves in cold water for 5 minutes to soften then drain.

Step 3

Warm the fish stock, add gelatine leaves and stir to dissolve.

Step 4

Add dissolved gelatine to the salmon mix in the food processor. Add in worcestershire sauce and tabasco and process until well combined. Add cream and process again.

Step 5

Use the remaining salmon slices to line four 120-150ml ramekins. Arrange smoked salmon so there is enough to fold over the top. Fill each ramekin with mousse and fold the salmon over top. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in fridge for 2 hours.

Step 6

Place herbs in a bowl with salmon roe, olive oil and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper and toss gently.

Step 7

To serve, gently unmould each mousse onto a serving plate and top with the herb and roe mixture. Drizzle with extra olive oil and serve with crackers.
