Soften the gelatin in the cold water. Bring tomatoes to a boil, reduce

until melted. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Whisk in
mayonnaise, onion, celery, salt, Tabasco, and lemon juice. Stir to blend
completely. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes, then fold in crab and shrimp.

overnight. A fish mold is ideal for this mousse. For decoration, use olives
for the eyes, fresh parsley or fresh dillweed for eyebrows, sliced almonds
for scales, and pimiento strips on the tailfin. Serve with cracker,
cocktail toasts, or with slices of dark rye or pumpernickel.
