- pre heat oven to moderate ( 170c).
- push into patty pans and cook until slightly golden brown - 15 - 20 minutes, sometimes its worth flipping them over in the pan just to make sure the base is well cooked then remove and cool.
- The Filling.
- Drain the Salmon well. when you open the can actually push the lid into the can to get out as much juice as possible and remove any skin and bones. Beat the cream cheese until soft, add the salmon, sour cream, salad dressing and lemon juice, coriander, chives, salt and pepper, beat all together for one minute.
- Put at least one heaped teaspoon of the filling into each bread case, garnish with a few pieces of Chives and serve.
