Drizzle it!

Make sure to drizzle some Extra Virgin Olive Oil at the top of the foil

Vincenzo’s Top Tips To Make Salmon Tarts

Rectangular cut

Make sure you cut it to a rectangular strip of shortcrust pastry that has approx. 12cm wide in size.

Layers, layers!

Best is to layer a few thin strips of salmon on top of the vegetables and cheese spread.

Still BE careful

Add as many as you like to the tray BUT be careful they are not too close together or touching each other
