24 Servings


 

1 Break up the smoked trout into pieces. Blend with the cream cheese until smooth in a processor. Stop and scrape down the sides as necessary.

2 Add the juice of up to half a lemon and blend. Taste and add more lemon juice/salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to the fridge to firm up while you are preparing the smoked salmon and cucumber tartlets.

3 Separate the pickled cucumber slices and dry them carefully on a paper towel. Lay out the smoked salmon and cucumber slices on a chopping board. Using a pastry cutter small enough to cut discs to fit in the cases, stamp out 24 discs of smoked salmon and 24 circles of pickled cucumber. Line the tartlet shells first with the smoked salmon discs then the pickled cucumber. Fill up the shells with the smoked trout filling. Top with a decoration of your choice.
