Preheat oven to 220°C.

To make salad: Place olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper into a bowl and combine.  Brush salmon on both sides with this mixture and place onto a low-sided baking tray.  Place into oven and bake for 5-7 minutes, or till salmon is cooked medium rare.  Cool salmon to room temperature and flake into pieces.

Into a medium-sized bowl place salmon, onion, celery, eggs, chives, chervil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Gently toss to combine.

Place 2 rounded tablespoons of Salmon and Chervil Salad into vol-au-vent cases and serve as soon as possible.
