Salmon, Leeks and Chorizo Savory TartOn dine chez Nanou
There’s chicken potpie, and there’s fish chowder—this recipe combines the best of both of those all-American classics in a savory pie that’s destined to become a new favorite. The filling features fresh salmon and smoky chorizo; be sure to buy not the fresh variety but the dry-cured Spanish one that doesn’t require further cooking. Lard will yield the flakiest crust, and you can find it in many supermarkets (or ask your local butcher). Otherwise use butter, which imparts flavor as well.
