Directions

Lightly oil eight decorative 1/2 cup molds.
Place the salmon and red pepper in a food processor fitted with a steel chopping blade, and process until smooth.
Add the yogurt, scallions, celery, cucumber, dill, lemon juice, salt, and red pepper and pulse just until combined, scraping down the sides occasionally.
Meanwhile, pour about 1/4 cup cold water in a cup and sprinkle the gelatin on top of it.
Do not stir.
Once the granules are absorbed, combine the gelatin with the salmon liquid and boiling water and stir to blend.
Allow the liquid to cool in the refrigerator until room temperature, then add it to the salmon mixture through the feed tube while the processor is running.
Transfer the salmon mixture to a bowl.
Beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry.
Fold them into the salmon, but do not overmix.
Ladle the mousse into the prepared molds, cover, and refrigerate until firm, at least 4 to 6 hours.
