Imperial Fish Mousse

This looks fancy but genuinely is very easy to make - I was lucky to find a packet of Salmon Roe in my fridge which came to great use here .
300 Grams Boneless Sole.
100 Grams Cleaned Shrimp ( optional )
6 Tablespoons Mayonnaise - Flavor it with herbs / chili / ketchup - all optional .
1 Tablespoon Chopped Celery .
1 Tablespoon Red Peppers / De Seeded Tomatoes
1 Teaspoon White Onions
1/2 Teaspoon Gelatine .
Sliced Cucumber
Orange Reduction / Ready made sweet and Sour Dressing.
Roasted Sesame Seeds.

Boil the fish with a bay leaf , 2-3 cloves of garlic for 7-10 minutes . When almost done add prawns if using , boil another one minute , strain and discard bay leaf and garlic . When cool mince prawns and crumble the fish - don't make it a paste .Flavor your mayo sprinkle gelatine ,add chopped vegetables , add the fish and prawns .Add salt and herbs/spice to taste - at this stage adjust flavors and then put the fish to set in a mold of your choice in the fridge , cling wrapped for 8 hours or overnight .

Then plate as desired - I unmolded the fish , layered the rest of the platter with sliced cucumbers , sprinkled sesame seeds on the cucumbers , spooned on the dressing and decorated the top of fish mousse with salmon roe - serve chilled .This is perhaps one of the finest cold fish dish I have eaten .

If this doesn't wow your friends - get new ones !
