Vegan Retro Salmon Mousse Mold

Alright, so this recipe is sort of a freaky vegan cooking experiment. I found a ridiculous fish mold on Etsy... and decided to make the ever odd salmon mousse mold gone not so fishy. Hilarity ensued by this creation. From what I hear, it tasted the way a "normal" salmon mousse mold tastes like. I guess it is a culinary win?
