Ingredients for SMOKED SALMON MINI TARTS WITH GOAT’S CHEESE

Here’s why these SMOKED SALMON MINI TARTS WITH GOAT’S CHEESE are always well received:

Mini tart shells lined up ready to be filled

SHELL GAME

The foundation for these tarts are store-bought pastry shells. We really like how easy they are to use but the results are pretty impressive too. Prepare this recipe following the directions on the package and expect a tender, flakey surround for your tarts every time. Also not a bad idea to keep a box or two in your freezer as back-ups.

FILLER

All of the ingredients needed to make these party snacks are easy to find at your local grocery store. We used frozen smoked salmon that we thawed right before making the mini tarts as well as a pre-crumbled goat’s cheese. We wanted to make the process as simple as possible.

Baby spinach, cherry tomatoes and green onions sautéed in butter

SKILLET WORKS

Adding a fresh veggie component into this tart mix gives them a really nice flavour kick. Sautéing the spinach and cherry tomatoes in butter with chopped green onions happens with minimal effort, and both the colour combo and flavours are divine!

Cream cheese and egg custard

ALL TOGETHER

Assembling the smoked salmon and sautéed veggies makes for quick work; these mini tarts get extra points for their relaxed vibe. One thing to keep in mind is to be generous. They’re more memorable when bursting with smoked salmon and sautéed veggie flavours.

CUSTARD CHEESE

Have just written the bit about the salmon and veggies, I better clarify something. These little tarts are also memorable thanks to the egg and cream cheese custard flavoured with Dijon. Topping the tarts with goat’s cheese is the icing on the cake, so to speak.

PARTY ON

As mentioned, bringing a tray of these tiny but flavourful tarts out of the oven will turn heads. The rich aromas and appetizing look of these tarts is captivating and everyone will want one (or six!)
