    Smoked Salmon Tart.

    Post  Admin on Sun Aug 11, 2013 8:53 pm

    375g pack ready-rolled shortcrust pastry
    •400g (14oz) light cream cheese, we used Philadelphia light
    •2tbsp freshly chopped chives, plus extra chopped chives to garnish
    •2 lemons
    •250g (9oz) smoked salmon, in long slices
    •2 spring onions, finely sliced.

    Method1 Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan) mark 6. Unroll the pastry on to a large baking sheet (discard packaging) and cook in the oven for 18-20min until golden brown. Carefully take out of oven and leave it to cool completely on the tray (make sure it doesn’t become stuck). 2 Mix the cream cheese in a large bowl to loosen it, then stir in the chives and some seasoning. Finely grate off the zest from one of the lemons (avoiding the white pith beneath the yellow skin). Stir in most of the zest and check the seasoning. 3 Slide cooked pastry on to a pretty board or platter. Spread filling on top, leaving a 2cm (¾in) border around the sides. 4 Arrange the salmon slices in nice swirls. Scatter over chives, spring onions and remaining zest. Cut remaining lemon into wedges and serve with the tart.
