Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.

Haddock, Leek & Tender Stem Tart

As with most of my recipes, this can be adapted with whatever you have in the fridge or fancy. Salmon (either fresh or smoked) could replace the haddock; you could use asparagus or spinach in place of the broccoli; or you could use shortcrust pastry. I just like puff. Enjoy!

Serves: 6

Prep: 10 minutes
Cooking: 25 minutes
Total: 35 minutes

Difficulty: moderate



320g ready rolled puff pastry sheet
240g un-dyed haddock
1 leek chopped
Bunch of fresh thyme, leaves picked, or use 1/2 tsp dried
200g tender stem tips
3 eggs whisked
300ml milk
100ml double cream
60g cheddar

Grease a pie dish and line it with the pastry. Prick the bottom of the pastry using a fork.

Soften the leek & thyme in a lug of oil.

Add the fish and milk to a pan with a bay leaf. Bring to a simmer for 3 minutes. Lift out the fish and let the milk cool.

Whisk the eggs. Add the cream, milk and half the cheddar . Flake in the haddock. Season.

Cook the broccoli for just 1 minute and drain.

Spread the leeks on top of the pastry and pour over the fish/egg/cream filling.

Arrange the tender stem on top, sprinkle with the remaining cheese and put in the oven at 180 fan for 25 minutes.
