I used the frozen fillo cups and made the filling a day ahead so the flavors would blend, then filled the cups just before serving. I also added an 1/8 c minced gherkins and 1 tbsp. minced fresh dill. They were okay, but next time I'll try chive and onion cream cheese and more gherkins. Easy for sure and tasty.
Have stopped counting the number of times I've made these! I find them addicting as do those who try them. However, I do not make the cups in the recipe. I prefer to use the frozen filo cups, perfect size every time. I also make the salmon up a day ahead and let it chill before filling the cups which I also chill once filled. They are as tasty as the first time, so leftovers are great.
I make these every year at Christmas. I use smoked salmon. So good!
I have made these for MANY occasions, including a couple of weddings! ALWAYS a hit! I usually do NOT use the cups called for in the recipe, but substitute wonton wrappers. Easily baked in a mini muffin pan and look great, too! A+++++!!!
These were very nice! I had a lot of the filling left over---perhaps I used more salmon than I realized. I agree that, if using canned salmon, reduce or even eliminate the salt.
I was running short of time when making these; I was only able to refrigerate them for an hour and a half. There were leftovers, and when we had those today, I realized how important it is to give them ample chilling time. I recommend at lease four hours or more, as they tasted better the next day. I also think that something could be added to the mousse--perhaps some garlic powder or other seasoning, but these were still very nice. The size of the tarts is perfect. I am also thinking about making this recipe with crab or shrimp.
