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.
