For a log mould 30 cm

Réf : 3206.04

  • 200 g of sliced smoked salmon
  • 50 g prawn (or shellfish or fish) stock
  • 2 g (1 sheet) gelatine
  • 10 g of soft butter
  • 5 g of whipped cream
  • 100 g crab meat


Preparing the mould:

Cut the salmon slices into rectangles (set the trimmings aside).

Cover your mould with cling film.

Line your mould with the smoked salmon rectangles, letting them extend over the edges, in order to cover the top when assembling.


Making the bavarois:

Put the smoked salmon trimmings (around 50g) and the butter into a blender. Blend.

Tip over the hot stock into which you will have melted the gelatine (already been rehydrated in cold water). Blend. 

Add the crab meat, and finally the whipped cream.



Tip the bavarois in your smoked salmon lined mould.

Cover with the remaining smoked salmon from the sides.

Cover with cling film and refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving.
