For the crust:
1. In a food processor combine the flour, salt and olive oil
and pulse for about 3 to 4 seconds.
While the food processor is running,
slowly pour in the very cold water and keep running
until the pastry begins to come together, about 7 to 8 seconds.
Do not overwork the dough.
2. Next, add the fresh thyme and freshly grated cheddar
and pulse just a few times so that the thyme and cheddar
become incorporated into the dough.
3. Transfer the olive oil pastry dough to a lightly floured work surface,
knead just a few times, gather to form a ball, wrap in plastic wrap
and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before rolling it out.
4. Preheat the oven to 200C.
Remove the dough from the refrigerator
and roll out on a lightly floured work surface.
Transfer dough to a lined and greased 25cm tart tin,
gently pressing the olive oil pastry into the tin.
Prick the dough with a fork and bake it for 12-15 minutes.
5. Remove from the oven and lower the oven temperature to 180C.
For the filling:
1.Combine the eggs, cream and salt and beat well.
Add 1 tablespoon of finely chopped dill.
2. Arrange the chunks of salmon in the base of the tart shell
and surround with crumbled goat’s cheese.
3. Pour the filling into the olive oil pastry crust,
and scatter with remaining dill sprigs.
4. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the centre is just set.
5. Let stand for at least 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
