Smoked Salmon Galette Tart with Crème Fraîche
This beautiful brunch-ready dish can be served warm or at room temperature.
F&L galette dough, chilled
1 cup whipping cream, half and half, or whole milk
4 ounces smoked salmon, chopped in large pieces
¼ cup crème fraiche
2 tablespoons fresh dill
2 tablespoons chopped green onion
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1. Preheat the oven to 375°. Lightly flour a work surface and roll out the galette dough. Trim the pastry into a circle so the pastry goes up the sides of a pie tin or tart pan. Trim any excess so the dough flush with the top of the sides.
2. Pierce the bottom of the pastry with a fork then prepare the pan for blind baking by placing a sheet of aluminum foil over the dough and gently molding it around the edges of the pan and up the sides. Top the foil with enough dry beans or pie weights to fill the pan. Bake the pastry for 15 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk the eggs, cream and salt. Pour the egg mixture into the par-baked puff pastry shell then top with the smoked salmon pieces, and dot with crème fraiche or goat cheese, green onion and fresh dill. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the eggs are set. Allow to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving, or serve at room temperature. Top with more fresh dill and green onion and serve.
