On Sunday night, we had dinner with some dear friends we hadn’t seen in a while and it was a fantastic catch up at their new, old home. They love villas with heaps of character and make gorgeous homes wherever they live. I thought this was a great opportunity to make some appetizers that others could taste besides us and I came up with these smoked salmon tartlettes to take with us. I had hoped to find some pastry shells in the supermarket to save time but they only had sweet ones so I bought pastry sheets instead. I know – I should have made the pastry myself and if you want to, I have a good recipe I use here. The filling was delicious and you could mix it up as much as you want. Empty pastry shells are a blank canvas which can be filled with whatever your imagination can create.
