    Preheat oven to 170C. Spray a round 4cm-deep, 23cm (base measurement) fluted tart tin, with removable base, with olive oil. Line with the pastry and trim any excess.

To Freeze: Bake and cool the tart. Cover the whole tart with 1 layer of plastic wrap and 1 layer of foil. Freeze for up to 2 months.

To reheat from frozen: Remove foil and discard the plastic wrap. Cover the tart with foil again. Bake at 150C for 40 minutes or until warmed through.

Top tips: 

1) To line the tin, overlap the pastry sheets and gently roll to seal. If there are any gaps in the pastry case, the filling may leak.

2)For the edge, drape the pastry over the tin and press into the ridges. Don’t pull the pastry, or it may shrink during baking.

3) To prepare hot-smoked salmon, remove and discard the skin, then use your fingers to gently flake it into large pieces.
