Preheat the oven to 150°C/Gas mark 2. Line the base of each stainless steel ring with cling film. Transfer the mousse to a piping bag and pipe the mousse into the rings, dividing it evenly between them – about 50g per portion. Using a rounded spoon, smooth over the surface

Meanwhile, make the sauce. Combine the fish stock and wine in a saucepan and bring to a rapid boil. Reduce the liquid by one-third, until it resembles a glaze. Add the cream and salt to taste then return to the boil and simmer until the mix coats back of spoon. Keep warm until needed
