Trim each side to form a cylindrical shape, then roll in clingfilm very tightly to shape. Refrigerate for at least six hours. Mousse: Chill blender and mixing bowl, then blend salmon until smooth. Reduce Noilly Prat, fish stock and tarragon to glaze. Take off heat, add lemon juice and geletine. Allow to cool. Slowly pour cream into blender keeping the mousse as cold as possible. Add Noilly Prat reduction, a small amount at a time. Season to taste and pass. Pipe into six ramekins and freeze. Rillettes: Warm duck fat and place the salmon in it. Remove pan from heat and allow to cool, leaving the salmon in the fat for five minutes. Take out and place in a bowl. Finely flake the fish. Add about five to eight tablespoons of confit fat and mix in. Season. When cold add the coriander. Line ring moulds with smoked salmon. Allow to set for four hours before plating. Terrine: Line the terrine with the potato sheets, making sure that you do not overlap. Cool in fridge. Gently fry the sliced foie gras on each side for one minute. Remove and cool. Cut the salmon 300mm x 40mm wide and 1/2cm thick. Pan-fry the girolles for one minute, season to taste Build the terrine by applying a thin layer of salmon rillette about 1/4cm thick over the bottom of the potato lined mould. Allow to set, then do a layer each of foie gras, smoked salmon, rillete, girolles, smoked salmon, rillete. Allow the terrine to set between each addition. Finish with a layer of potatoes. When finished apply a small amount of pressure on the terrine to press it until it is firm enough to turn out.
