Updated: Nov 14, 2019

This salmon mousse is the OG croud pleaser at the Zajac Café (what we call our apartment), its so good and really easy to make, its a great thing to cook if your just starting out, its great on cheese plates and for apatizers. The only annoying thing about this recipe is probably the amount of time it has to chill for, but trust me its worth it!
