Smoked Salmon Tart with Sweet Potato Crust

Smoked Salmon Tart with Sweet Potato Crust | Roxy's Kitchen

We eat salmon quite often so once in a while I like coming up with a new recipe.  If you’ve got used to my five-ingredient recipes I must warn you that this is not one of those. The recipe is still super easy to make but the ingredients list is a little longer. The good news about this Smoked Salmon Tart recipe is that you don’t need to worry about making that perfect tart pastry because you’ll be making a quick and easy sweet potato crust instead. We really loved how this tart turned out and will definitely be using this recipe for years and years to come. If you decide to try it out I’d love to hear if you enjoyed it as much as us!

Oh and before I forget… this is the perfect recipe especially if you have any leftover mashed sweet potatoes as you can turn them into another delicious, healthy and filling meal for your family!

So, without further ado, let me show you how to make the most amazing Smoked Salmon Tart! Read More
