Salmon Tart

This is a lovely easy tart, a perfect supper dish for two.

You can make this with hot-smoked salmon or using any of our frozen BigFish fillets - Salmon or Loch Trout.  You could even experiment with one of our marinade flavours!

    Lay the pastry sheet in a 9" tart tin, you can trim the edges if you like, we went for a more rustic look. Prick the pastry all over.

    Remove from the oven, sprinkle Parmesan over the base while still hot, then leave to cool for 10 minutes.

    In a bowl, stir together the eggs, lemon zest and crème fraîche, seasoning with salt and pepper, and add the rocket and flaked salmon. Then pour slowly into the tart.
