  • olive oil spray
  • 4 sheets filo pastry
  • 210 g tin red salmon, drained and mashed with a fork
  • 2 broccoli florets, finely diced
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup light milk
  • pinch curry powder (optional)
  • 70 g cheddar cheese (25% reduced-fat), cut into 4 pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 2000C/1800C fan-forced. Spray muffin tins with oilve oil spray, cut pastry into half and then into 4 equal strips, making 8 shorter strips. Place 2 strips criss-crossed in the bottom of each muffin tin. Spray with more olive oil spray.
  2. Place one-quarter of the salmon in each pastry case, then top with broccoli. In a small jug, beat the eggs, milk and curry powder (if using). Pour evenly into each pastry case. Place a piece of cheese on top of each one. Cook in the oven for 15–20 minutes or until cooked.

Health tip: These are a great snack to put into a lunch box for a takeaway snack, for the whole family.  Light milk is used here as there are enough other fats included in the recipe.

Cook’s tip: You can use any vegetable and protein your child likes, for example ham and corn, or chicken and mushroom.  If you don’t have any filo pastry, you could also use a large piece of bread, without crusts.
