Spring into Smoked Haddock and Parmesan Tarts

Smoked haddock is one of those foods that i can simultaneously crave and not know what to do with. But today I have solved the latter problem. These tarts are great as part of a hot buffet, or you could make a bigger ones for lunch (maybe with some salad on the side if you’re feeling virtuous).  G.

Makes 12

Ingredients:

For the Filling:

300g  Smoked Haddock (I like dyed for the colour)

Generous bunch fresh parsley, chopped

Baking potato

Roughly 100g parmesan, grated

For the Pastry:

250g plain flour

110g butter

About 3 tbsp cold water

 

Method:

To make the pastry:

  1. Rub the butter into the flour until it forms rough breadcrumbs (or pulse in a food processor for about 2 mins).
  2. Stir in cold water bit by bit until the mixture comes together into a dough.
  3. Place the pastry into the fridge to chill for at least half an hour (it’ll last a couple days if necessary).

For the Filling:

  1. Dice the potatoes and boil them until soft, then leave to cool.
  2. Break the smoked haddock into small chunks then mix with the potato, parsley and parmesan, season to taste.
  3. Thinly roll out the pastry and cut into rounds to fill a muffin or cupcake tin.
  4. Generously fill the pastry cases with the cool filling.
  5. Bake for approximately 30mins until the filling is browning on top and the pastry is cooked.

  1. I once tried this really great salmon wrapped in puff pastry. This kind of reminds me of that! How beautiful! Would love to try it! 🙂
