Low FODMAP and Gluten Free Recipe - Smoked salmon, shrimp & cucumber mousse


1 tsp rapeseed oil, for greasing

1 large cucumber, peeled and very finely sliced

400g/14oz smoked salmon fillet (unsliced), chopped

1 lemon, juice only, plus extra lemon wedges to serve

200g/7oz full-fat lactose free cream cheese

450ml/16fl oz lactose free double cream

300g/10½oz cooked shrimp, shells removed, de-veined, plus 6 extra shrimp, shells left on

50g/1¾oz watercress leaves

Melba toast, cut into quarters, to serve

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


Grease a 22cm/9in savarin mould with a little rapeseed oil, then line it with cling film, making sure the cling firm overlaps the edges of the mould all the way around.

Arrange three-quarters of the cucumber slices in overlapping layers to cover all of the inside of the mould (the effect should resemble fish scales). Set aside.

Blend the chopped smoked salmon with the lemon juice in a food processor until smooth. Add the lactose free cream cheese and blend once more to combine.

With the motor still running, gradually pour in the lactose free double cream until the mixture thickens to a mousse, scraping the sides of the food processor with a spatula halfway through blending.

Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper, and more lemon juice if desired.

Carefully spoon the mousse into a piping bag, then pipe half of it into the bottom of the cucumber-lined mould.

Arrange a layer of shrimp all over the surface of the mousse, then pipe over the remaining mousse and smooth the top using a palette knife.

Arrange the remaining cucumber slices on top, then cover with cling film and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, or until ready to serve.

To serve, peel away the cling film, then invert the savarin mould onto a serving plate. Gently lift away the mould and peel off the cling film that was lining the mould.

Pile the watercress into the centre of the ring of mousse and top the watercress with the extra shrimp. Serve the mousse in slices with lemon wedges and gluten free toast.
