Smoked & Fresh Salmon Fillet, Feta Cheese and Herbs Tart

Salmon tart is one of my favorite dishes to make for Lunch or Dinner, I love tart because its basically easy to prepare, satisfying to eat, and i always have ingredients on hand to make one. What’s great about tart is that once you know how to make a pastry base and savoury custard, you can play with different fillings, experiment.
This tart would be perfect for breakfast, brunches, lunches, and any sort of gathering.  You can prepare them ahead of time and most people seem to enjoy them! Serve with a mixed green salad tossed with olive oil and balsamic


Here is my favorite basic pie crust
1 1/2 cups  flours
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper
½ tsb fresh herb  chopped
200gm cold butter, cut into cubes
1/3 cup ice water

Preheat the oven to 400 F /200 C Sift the flour, salt, pepper and herb into a food processor, add the cold butter and process until the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs, Add a little ice water just enough to bring the dough together.
Turn out onto a floured counter and divide into a square that is about one inch thick Do not knead it or overwork it. Wrap it in cling wrap and chill it for 2 hours.
Roll the dough to fit the tart mold carefully fit each piece of dough in its shell and press side gently, roll the rolling pin over the pan to neaten the edges an trim the excess dough chilled for another one hour before baking
