I love smoked salmon and asparagus, so this really would be heaven for me! Plus it' s within my buget, healthy and my 2 boys (5 and 3) would actually eat it! (Major +++) and it is ready in under 25 minutes. Really what more could you ask for!!! Will definately make this for the weekend. You have yet again got me out of a food rut.


I think this is a great recipe I would make this as a starter when friends come to dinner it also combines two of my favourite things asparagus and smoked salmon which I love and they make such a good combination plus I can use eggs from my chickens. They would equally be good for a picnic or light luncheon.


I'd love to make these for my niece's 21st party. They look deliciously appetising and sophisticated too. It makes a change to find something that's quite different from the usual quiche. I love the fact that they would be equally good hot or cold.
