  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Roll out the pastry and line a shallow 28cm flan tin. Trim off the edges, then line with baking paper and beans. Put on a baking sheet, bake for 10 mins. Remove the paper and beans, then bake for 5 mins more.

  2. Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water for 6-8 mins until tender, then drain. Beat together the cream, eggs, dill, lime zest, salt and pepper. Scatter half the potatoes over the bottom of the pastry case, then put half the salmon strips in the gaps. Pour over half the egg mix, then arrange the remaining potatoes over the salmon pieces and put the remaining salmon in the gaps between. Pour over the rest of the egg mix.

  3. Bake for 25 mins until the top is lightly coloured and firm to the touch. Cool for 10 mins before removing from the tin, then serve warm or at room temperature sprinkled with extra dill.

Excellent recipe, very tasty, will definitely make again.
Does not freeze very well as the cream splits and the pastry holds the water.

Simple and very tasty. Took a lot longer than the recipe states but was worth it.

Will definitely make again

Simple recipe and very tasty, having said that I used double cream instead of single as that was what was in my fridge and also added one chopped red pepper. Would definitely make this again.

Can you use Hot smoked Salmon with this recipe?

I have made different quiches and am sure this will turn out as good as all the others. (too many cheese varieties for us)

Made this today and it was gorgeous! Easy to make and spot on with timings and measurements.

I've made this many times using lime or lemon zest - just as good!
I always boil the spuds whole & then slice, & add 3 eggs, as I use the largest flan tin I can find. Really tasty hot, or cold next day, if it lasts that long!

oops forgot to rate recipe

i have frozen just about every quiche or tart i have ever made (using my husband as guinea pig, before unleashing them on friends) and everyone has been fine, so i will be trying it out on this one. I also make them as canapes (chopping the salmon & potato very small) in minature pastry cases

I too would like to know if it can be frozen. Any quiche type thing usually can be but not sure when it has potatoes in it. Am wondering about increasing the salmon content and cream and eggs and taking out the potatoes. Has anyone tried?

I made this as an alternative starter (for those who didn't want soup) on Xmas Eve, and everyone absolutely loved it! Husband and I also very much enjoyed munching on the left-overs the next day :-) I did, however, make my shortcrust pastry from scratch (I find this quite easy; not sure why it makes some people nervous?) and have 2 more batches of pastry in the freezer now for future tarts, quiches and pies. Brilliant recipe!

Made this as a starter for Christmas Day - absolutely delicious and so easy to make. I actually used tinned new potatoes as a short cut (I don't ever use tinned potatoes but the texture was perfect for slicing). It is quite salty so I served with a cucumber salad dressed with lemon and olive oil.

easy and absolutely fab!

a scrumptious tart - I have been asked to make it again when friends and family visit for lunch!

I made this recipe for a party, it went down really well. I was asked to share the recipe and make it again. Scrummy!!!

Have made this 4 times now and it is always perfect. A great way to use smoked salmon 'trimmings' as well.

Yes, you are putting the paper on top of the pastry that you have laid inside the dish. You should probably prick the pastry first with a fork first. The beans are baking beans - you can always use uncooked rice instead.

Not quite sure what she means in the first part:
Roll out the pastry and line a shallow 28cm flan tin. Trim off the edges, then line with baking paper and beans. Put on a baking sheet, bake for 10 mins. Remove the paper and beans, then bake for 5 mins more.

Am i trimming the edges of the pastry and putting baking paper on top of the pastry? and what is this about beans????

Can someone help me understand this part please!!
