Fresh salmon is a popular choice because it has a good flavor and an attractive color. It is particularly nice combined with shellfish for a luxurious dinner party starter. Smoked fish such as mackerel, salmon, trout and even kippers work well because they, too, are strongly flavored. They can be combined with some cream, cream cheese, or mayonnaise and lemon to make a rich, tasty mousse.
Remove all the bones before working the flesh in a food processor. The resulting puree should also be checked for small bones before being combined with other ingredients. Fish bones in mousse are unpleasant and can be dangerous.
