3 Tbsp whipping cream
1/2 Tbsp lemon pepper
1 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp black pepper

METHOD
Salmon Mousse
1. Purée salmon in a food processor. Add the remaining ingredients and purée until blended thoroughly.
2. Bring 2 cups water to a boil in a pot. Add a small drop of salmon mousse into the boiling water. Once the mousse floats, remove and taste. Season remainder of mixture with salt and pepper if needed.
3. Add 6 heaping tablespoons of salmon mousse into the water, cooking until they float. Remove from heat and place quenelles in a baking dish.
Saffron Sauce

Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cool the sauce in a water bath or leave for 1 hour until saffron is infused.
4. Pour the saffron sauce over the salmon mousse. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top and bake 15 minutes at 350°F, until golden brown.
