If I were ever to get pregnant, I know I’d totally crave mayonnaise. Egg-based items are one of my favorite things and mayonnaise is something I KNOW will never gross me out. So Rachel, here’s to hoping you are still loving mayo! 

SURPRISE!!!! You’re invited to an awesome virtual baby shower hosted by Brandy of Nutmeg Nanny and Brandi from Bran Appetit for our dear friend Rachel of Rachel Cooks and her bundle of joy that’s soon to be here!


Oh and we’re supposed to be giving advice to the mother, but Rachel already has an adorable kiddo and heck, I don’t even have one! So, I honestly have no clue what to say other then make a few casserole dishes, freeze them in portions, and….that’s about it. I’ll be the crazy/clueless aunt that feeds your baby brownies. What? 2-month old babies can’t eat brownies?! Prove it!

And what did I bring to the party? Well, these Curried Salmon Phyllo Cups, that’s what! These are the perfect dainty little savory treat to serve at any cocktail party, and even better at baby showers! We’re all used to the comfort of chicken salad, but I decided to switch it up and make this healthier by using roasted salmon filet. And then I went and made it a little unhealthy with the addition of mayonnaise, ha!

You can find phyllo cups in the frozen pastry section of your grocery store and they are a fantastic thing to have on hand at all times. Perfect for unexpected guests, since you can fill them up with whatever you have on hand.

Curried Salmon Salad Stuffed Phyllo Cups

The perfect little bite for your cocktail parties, it's also a fantastic way to use up any salmon leftover from a previous dinner. Tossed with a spiced mayonnaise, this isn't your regular salad!

  • 1 salmon filet previously cooked and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons chopped celery
  • 3 tablespoon curry mayonnaise*
  • teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 strips bacon cut into strips and fried
  • pinch of green Zatar
  • 12 phyllo cups thawed


  • In a small bowl, shred the salmon into chunks.
  • Fold in celery, mayonnaise, and salt.
  • Fill phyllo cups with salmon salad, sprinkle with a pinch of green Zatar and top with bacon strips.


In this particular recipe I used Empire Mayo's Vadouvan mayonnaise but you can make your own by whisking together regular mayonnaise and your favorite curry powder. Start with a pinch and add as much curry as you'd like.
Servings: 12 phyllo cups
