Scallop Mousse


  • 8 oz. Bay scallops
  • 1/2 cup Green peas
  • 1/4 cup Parsley
  • 1/4 cup Heavy cream
  • 1 ea. Egg
  • Salmon trimmings (if available)


  1. Place ingredients in a food processor and blend. If too wet, add more scallops/salmon or a touch of flour to adjust consistency. If too dry, add more cream.
  2. Cook a tablespoon amount off to taste and adjust seasoning. If too bland, add more salt and test again.
  3. Place raw mousse in a piping bag and reserve.

  3. Place down salmon, pipe mousse onto the salmon filet just covering.
  4. Roll the biscuit dough over and seal.
  5. Brush with egg wash and bake until golden brown.
