Easy Crab Tart

This pretty tart filled with sweet crab meat can also be served cold, making it perfect fare for your next picnic.

1 sheet frozen reduced-fat puff pastry, just thawed  

4 eggs

2 egg whites

¼ cup (60g) crème fraîche (see note)

400g fresh crab meat (see tip)

3 green shallots, thinly sliced

1 tsp cayenne pepper

Lemon wedges, to serve

1 Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan-forced. Lightly spray a 20cm round fluted tart tin with oil. Press pastry into prepared tin and trim excess. Place tin on a baking tray and refrigerate for 10 minutes.

2  Meanwhile, whisk eggs, egg whites and crème fraîche in a large bowl until combined. Stir in crab meat, shallots, cayenne pepper and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Pour crab mixture into pastry case.

3 Bake for 35–40 minutes or until pastry is golden and filling is set. Stand tart in tin for 10 minutes before cutting into wedges. Serve with a lemon wedge.

NOTE: Crème fraîche is a French version of sour cream and is quite rich with a slight nutty flavour. It is available in the dairy section of most supermarkets.

TIP: Fresh crab meat can be found in the fresh seafood counter of some supermarkets or at your local fish monger.
