Description

Inspired by the flavors of the Maghreb region, this shrimp and potato tart draws its specific inspiration from Tunisian cuisine. Layers of flaky phyllo dough encapsulate a savory shrimp and potato filling that features saffron and parsley as its spices of choice. Buttery and smooth with plenty of parmesan for a creamy finish, this shrimp and potato tart is flaky and oh so tasty. Preparation of the filling is intended for a dutch oven. The tart itself is assembled in a springform pan.

  • 2 potatoes (medium, peeled and cubed)
  • 1 onions (diced)
  • 100 grams butter
  • 1 pinch saffron (or turmeric)
  • 250 milliliters water
  • 2 slices white sandwich bread (toasted and blended)
  • 2 eggs

  • 400 grams large shrimp (peeled)
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 8 sheets phyllo pastry
  • olive oil
  • sesame seeds (for garnish)

  1. In a Dutch oven, add the potatoes, onion, butter, saffron, and 250 milliliters of water. Season and cook on low heat until softened. Drain everything and mash them. Set aside.
  2. Once cooled, add in the bread crumbs, eggs, cheese, parsley, and shrimp. Mix well and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
