  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 450g of smoked cod, diced

Transfer the mix to a blender and blitz for 2 minutes. Pass the mix through a chinois, mix in the gelatine and place in a tray. Leave in the fridge until set

Once the mix is set, semi-whip the remaining cream and fold into the set mousse. Season to taste and store in the fridge until ready to serve

For the bread crisps, slice the bread wafer-thin and place under a hot grill, watching the whole time until lightly toasted
