Smoked Salmon Tart

Smoked salmon is well-suited to using in starters, its strong flavour often precluding the need for large amounts. And as starters go, this is one of the easiest – once the pastry is ready to go all you do is add the filling and bake – and, thanks to the richness of the contents, tastiest.
