  • 1 packet puff pastry or 500 g
  • 2 tablespoons lobster pate or 50 g
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup spring onions or 100 g, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh spinach or 75 g, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup hot water or 125 ml
  • 2 cubes MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon or 20 g
  • 4 eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 cups fresh cream or 500 ml
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese or 60 g
  • 1 medium red capsicum pepper or 150 g, cut into 5mm cubes
  • 450 g crab meat

How to Prepare

  1. Roll out puff pastry to 5mm thickness and fold over into a 30 cm tart pan, covering the bottom and all sides. Blind bake in a pre heated oven at 180°C for about 15 mins. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  2. Gently spread lobster pate over the cooled pastry.
  3. Melt butter in a frying pan; add spring onions and spinach and sauté over medium heat until wilted, add water, MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon and cook for about 5 mins until most of the liquid is absorbed. Spread the mixture over the lobster pate.
  4. Beat the eggs and cream and season well with cayenne pepper.
  5. Add grated Parmesan Cheese along with the crab meat to the cream mixture.
  6. Pour the filling covering the spring onion and spinach over the crust.
  7. Slide the tart onto the middle oven shelf and leave to bake for 35-40 mins. The tart is done when the top is golden and still has some ‘wobble’.
