I made this wonderful recipe last week for a very special occasion. We had a full-on afternoon tea to celebrate the life of hubby's Aunt Esther, who lived with us for almost 8 years and who died in demented aged care just before she turned 99. Esther would have loved this dish, and our guests certainly did. I made as written, but did a triple batch. Sorry I couldn't get a photo -- the guests were too quick. Thanks for posting such a great party dish.
Well for the idea alone I have to give 4 stars because I used the idea but used the typical mayo/mustard/green onion/chopped pickle filling. I finely chopped salmon and mixed that in my filling too and then finely sliced the salmon so it was sort of shredded as the nest in the egg. These were gone in a jiffy, the salmon was subtle for those of us who aren't crazy about it but will eat it and the salmon lovers couldn't pop them in their mouths fast enough! Great idea with a world of creative fillings!!
Look so enticing, taste divine. But you'd certainly have to enjoy smoked salmon - doesn't everyone? - and the two herbs to love these as much as we do. I made these last night; have to confess to eating one then, and I have just enjoyed another two with coffee for a leisurely and flavoursome brunch. I'll certainly be making these for take-to-work-breakfasts and lunches. Love all the ingredients and they provided a great blend of flavours which have mingled more effectively overnight. I used low-fat sour cream. Made for Newest Zaar Tag. Thanks so much for sharing this yummy recipe, Boomette! :)
