How To Make Salmon Tart?

Homemade tart shell

  • Cut the butter into small cubes and mix it with all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour in a bowl. Rub the flour into the butter cubes with your hands until coarse forms.
  • Beat the egg with salt in a small bowl, and slowly pour into the flour mixture. Keep kneading the dough while adding the beaten egg. Once all the ingredients are incorporated and the dough forms, cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  • Remove the dough from the refrigerator, and transfer it to a floured work surface. Gently roll out the dough into a 6-inches circle with a rolling pin.
  • Transfer the dough into a 4-inches round baking pan with a removeable bottom. Gently press down the dough from the side to fit in. Trim the excess part from the edges with a knife and prick the bottom with a fork.
  • Preheat the oven to 330°F (165°C), and bake the tart shell for 20 minutes. The tart shell may shrink a little bit after baking, which is noraml.
  • Remove the tart shell from the oven and allow it to cool down on the wire rack.

Salmon And Spinach Filling

  • Rinse and pat dry the salmon with paper towels. Cut the salmon into small cubes and place them aside.
  • Melt the butter in the frying pan, add chopped onion and cook until aromatic. Next, add salmon and sliced mushrooms, and season them with salt and pepper. Stir a few times until the salmon is cooked through. Dish out and set aside.
  • Fill the pot with water, and bring the water to a boil. Quickly boil the spinach for 1 minute, then drain out with a strainer.
  • Combine heavy cream and eggs in a bowl, and whisk well.

Assemble And Bake The Salmon Tart

  • Generously filled the tart shell with cooked salmon, mushrooms and spinach.
  • Then add the creamy egg mixture to the tart, and fill up to the top.
  • Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese on top before baking.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C), and bake for 45 minutes or until the center firms.

Tips For Baking

  • It is the best to use a pan with removable bottom for baking tarts. The baked tarts are easily to remove with a removeable bottom pan.
  • I recommand to use a 4-inches round chiffon cake baking pan for this recipe. Making salmon tart with a deep cake pan is better, and helps to hold more filling ingrdeints in the center.
  • If the tart is still jiggle in the center after 45 minutes baking, continue bake for another 5 to 10 minutes until it becomes firm. Then remove the salmon tart from the oven.
What To Serve With This Salmon Tart?

Salmon tart can be served on its own as a staple. You can also serve it with some boiled vegetables as well as green salads, such as avocado shrimp salad, or roasted pumpkin salad.

How To Store the Salmon Tart?

The best salmon tart is served hot and fresh out of the oven. However, you can always cook salmon and mushroom filling the night before, covered and refrigerated before baking. Keep the baked tart shells in the freezer will last up to 3 weeks with plastic wrap covered.
To reheat the leftover salmon tart, bake it for 10 minutes in a preheated oven for 356°F.
