Leftover Smoked Salmon Tart
Step 1

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place the sheet of puff pastry on the baking tray and poke holes in the pastry with a fork. Crack the egg into a bowl to make an egg wash. To make the everything seasoning, mix together the sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried garlic, dried onion and salt and sprinkle the edges of the sheet with the everything seasoning

Bake for 20- 25 minutes until it’s golden brown and puffy, if it’s puffed up a lot in the center you can poke it with a fork to deflate it. Let the pastry cool slightly before gently spreading the cream cheese over the tart.
