I am posting this recipe in honour of my Recipezaar friend Latchy who sadly passed away in 2006. This was one of two recipes she gave me that she hadn't got round to posting. I have made these and would certainly have given her 5* for them had she posted the recipe. I hope you enjoy them too. :) I used a can of pink salmon and made some into normal size muffins as well as some mini size muffins.

Thank you for the wonderful idea! I added some grueyer (grated) and the taste was excellent. Everyone at home loved the muffins, especially my 3-year-old. Great for picnics too!

A lovely savoury muffin with wonderful flavour. I had some smoked salmon that our son did for us in the freezer and used it, it was perfect, and the chives set it off beautifully. Thanks for posting.

This is such a nice savoury muffin recipe. I made it with red salmon. We were eating these gems is such a short time. Easy to make and very easy to eat. Thank you Latchy (miss you) and thank you Jenny for posting.
