Lemon Parsley Mousse with Pan-Seared Cod Recipe
Galaxy Gas Nitrous Infused Recipes
When creamed together, Lemon, capers, and parsley form a classic decadent sauce that is served with white fish. We have made the Galaxy Gas Nitrous Recipe: Lemon Parsley Mousse with Pan-Seared Cod Recipe with heavy cream and whipped it in Galaxy Gas Whipped Cream Dispenser. This method yields a light, airy and fluffy mousse topping. The foamy sauce delivers the delicate flavors of lemon, capers, and parsley while giving a classy texture to the dish when served. The mousse is often served with poached or seared. A great serving idea is to heat the serving plates in an oven to still hot while you dispense the sauce. In this way, the foam will begin melting in the plate, giving the dish an irresistible expression. The mousse also goes well with most of the cold fish preparations, including the cured and smoked salmons. Lemons and capers make a perfectly flavorful combination, and the cream just makes everything even more delicious. Combining lemon, parsley, and capers in this creamy foam makes a great accompaniment for the baked, broiled, or grilled fish. It also tastes good with shrimps and chicken. The foam is very simple and inexpensive, but it will add a luxurious look to your baked tuna or seared salmon.

Where can I find capers?
If you haven’t bought capers ever, there is nothing to worry about. Capers are easily available in most supermarkets. You can find them in small jars placed in the aisles that contain condiments and relishes such as olives and pickles. They are sometimes available in grocery stores, especially those which specialize in Italian ingredients.
Capers are unopened flower buds plucked from caper bush. Naturally, they have a tangy, floral taste and aroma. However, they also adopt a briny or salty taste because of the salt solution in which they are preserved. You can rinse capers before using them in the recipe to control their saltiness.
Capers go well with some chicken and most of the fish dishes. Some Italian pasta recipes also require the addition of capers.
What can I use if I don’t have capers?
Capers impart a tangy, floral, and salty flavor that makes the taste of fish even more delicious. The best substitute for capers is chopped green olives. These green olives come packed in water in jars, and their salty flavor resembles that of capers. Use one tablespoon of chopped olives instead of one tablespoon of capers if they aren’t available
