Pastry cases

You may have a little extra egg custard left if using a 20cm pastry case. If you can find a 23cm pastry case, use that instead.

This recipe is totally gorgeous and I've made it twice now (gonna do it for the third time tonight!) I followed the recipe exactly but had enough of the eggy mixture over to make a small flan as well. Also, the beauty of this is that you can adapt it as well and change the salmon to anything you want or add to it - Ill be making salmon and spinach tonight just to use up what's in my fridge! Thanks Stef - a real winner! - 05 Jan 2016
