Basic Fish Mousse

 
Basic Fish Mousse

It may be a basic way to make this fish mousse, but the flavor was definitely very sophisticated. Light, silken-smooth with the creamy and rich Hollandaise sauce that Sean made from the scratch, it was an ultimate enjoyment!

Our neighbour was one of the diners, and she said that this is the dish that she would pay for in a fine-dining restaurant. She kept the leftover in the refrigerator, then she told me the chilled one tasted even better :)

We had smoked bass mousse in Croatia. Your basic recipe seems to turn out what looks to be the same, smooth mousse. What we had in the restaurant was so special, I can't wait to try you take on it. Thanks for posting your recipe.
