To Make Mousse

In a large sauté pan over medium high heat, sauté the garlic, and shallots in butter; add the herbs, Worcestershire and parsley and as much of the bullion as necessary (leftovers will go into the mousse) .  Heat for just a moment 

Add shrimp and scallops and a small amount of bullion to food processor, pulse a few times.  Add contents of pan and cream and pulse until it reaches your desired texture.   If you need more bulk add  bread crumbs to fill it out (you should have around 3 cups). Let chill. Adjust seasoning

Heat oven to 350 F.

Prepare Salmon
On a floured surface, roll one sheet puff pastry to a 20x10-inch rectangle; transfer to a cookie sheet. Place salmon on top; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
