30 mins 4 servings
Cheesy Salty



  • 3 filo pastry
  • 25 g butter

Filling for tartlets:

  • 200 g smoked salmon
  • 1½ tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1½ tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped dill
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped shallots
  • 1 lemon
  • salt
  • pepper
  • approximately 50 g Castello® Mature Cheddar


1. Melt the butter, brush onto the pieces of filo pastry and put them on top of each other.

2. Plug round circles of the filo pastry and put in a muffin form or similar. The circles need to be a little bigger than bottom of the muffin forms to give the tartlets edges on top.

3. Bake at 356 Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius) for 5-6 minutes until they have a hint of color.

4. Let them cool.

5. Chop the salmon with a knife and stir with sour cream, mayonnaise, dill and shallot.

6. Season with salt, pepper and lemon zest.

7. Put a small amount of the salmon salad into the tartlets.

8. Top with grated Castello® Mature Cheddar and some dill.
