May I present you with a smoked salmon and cucumber tart, also on the table last Saturday (alongside the cute mini potatoes with wasabi cream and fake 'caviar' and the mocca cake with toasted almonds):
It's a bit like a sandwich cake, only that it contains no bread :) The dish is lined with thinly sliced cucumbers - pretty and spring-like. The recipe is still being developed - hence the WIP (work in progress) in the title of this post. It was tasty, but a bit too salty for my liking; the filling contains sour cream, cottage cheese, mayonnaise, cold smoked salmon, dill and is set with the addition of gelatine (thus not too dissimilar to the festive smoked salmon sandwich cake). I'm also not happy how the filling has leaked through the cucumber slices, so next time I'll double-line the dish with cucumber slices to make sure the upside down tart is perfectly green when I turn it around.
Otherwise not bad, not bad at all..
