- Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan oven 180°C/Gas Mark 6.
- Drain the salmon and remove any skin and any bones, if wished. Break into chunks, then cover and set aside.
- Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface and use it to line a 20cm (8in) flan ring or flan dish. Line with crumpled foil or greaseproof paper and baking beans and bake ‘blind’ (without a filling) for 10 minutes.
- Take the flan from the oven and remove the foil or paper and baking beans. Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C/fan oven 160°C/Gas Mark 4.
- Melt the butter in a frying pan and gently fry the leeks for 3-4 minutes. Cool a little, then scatter over the flan base with the cheese and salmon chunks.
- Beat the eggs and crème fraiche together. Season. Pour into the flan case, then bake for 30-35 minutes, until set. Serve warm or cold, garnished with fresh dill or parsley.
- Cook’s tip: Metal flan tins are best as they conduct heat efficiently, cooking the pastry to give a crisp base.
