The legendary smoked fish tart recipe

Several years ago, Jen found a smoked fish tart recipe in a magazine and gave it a go. It was utterly fantastic.

Ever since, we've been trying to find recipe again. Jen has a very large number of recipe magazines, and she's been through each one of them several times, searching for the bloody recipe. So illusive elusive was it, that the recipe became something of a legend at our place: "Remember that fish tart?" we would reminisce. "Wasn't it fantastic! I wonder what we did with the sodding recipe."

Anyway, the other week, Jen decided to have another look for it, and, after several hours' searching, she finally found it. W00t! So, to avoid losing it once again, I've published it here.

Give it a go: it's bloody fantastic.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing that with us Richard. Never mind about giving the cress a miss, I may well try it without the kippers and the parmesan - I am sure it will be delicious.

  3. Hello Richard Carter, I love your site, your photo's and I have found some of my favourite sites through your links. I think the fish tart recipe was elusive or maybe you really meant illusive; you thought you dreamt it?
