Since I’ve already made a sweet tart (see week 10), I decided on a savory tart. I got the creative gears a turnin’ and put together something I thought would taste good. I don’t know what to call it, so let’s go with: smoked salmon, caramelized onions, and crumbled goat cheese…tart.
A simple dish, the only time consuming part is caramelizing those onions.
Time lapse action shot! That’s how long they take, I had time to remember to take the photos at different times.
For this dish, I wanted to try to layer the flavors, savory, sweet, savory, sweet, savory. With the flatbread as a base, I spread a layer of mascarpone and apricot jam mixed together (which turned out delicious mixed together!), and then topped it with smoked salmon, caramelized onions, and finally the goat cheese. Yum!
