My Own Style Savoury Tarts..

I got some leftover dough from making Canadian butter tarts that turned out not good as I expected ( in fillings texture wise, not taste at all!), instead of making more of sweet butter tarts, I decided to do something different and came up with an idea of making savoury ones!

Anyway, I planned to use a commercial instant tuna spread as a filling in the first place but couldn't find any in a small supermarket where I stopped by. Given ingredients needed could be all found in the cupboard, I then had second thoughts about making my own filling!

Luckily, not only what I created was so easy to make but it also was edible! Honestly, it was much better than I thought..tasty and surprisingly went along very well with the tart base..:)

The recipe for the dough could be found here.

And what I used for my fillings are the following..

1 canned tuna in oil
3 crab sticks ( Japanese style) ,finely chopped
1/2 - 3/4 cup ( approximately ) real mayo      
a quarter of small onion, finely chopped
2 spring onions ( green part only), finely chopped
dried parsley , paparika, cayenne pepper ,curry powder, black pepper and caster sugar to taste

Mix everything together in a mixing bowl ..adjust all seasonings to match your own preferred taste.
