    This was an excellent dish. It was my first time making salmon mousse and it came out great. I used fresh wild salmon not canned. 
    While this was a tasty recipe, I had a rather odd experience while eating it. I was in the middle of having dinner with some of my American friends and I heard a knock at the door. Apparently it was a Mr. Death or something, and he was a rather rude fellow. Not only did he knock my perfectly good wine glass over on purpose, but then he announced to us all that he was in fact coming to collect our souls because we were all dead. My guest politely asked why we were, and apparently it was because of this dish. My suggestion, do not use canned salmon for this dish. Otherwise, it was moderately good.  
    This simple recipe is foiled by the brandy. It overpowers all the other flavors. Don't waste good salmon on this recipe.
