    Prawn & creamed leek tart with tomato & basil Recipe

        Step 1

        To make the parmesan shortcrust pastry, process the flour, butter and parmesan in a food processor until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the egg yolk and water and process until the dough just starts to come together. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until just smooth. Shape into a disc. Cover with plastic warp and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to rest.
        Step 2

        Divide the dough into 10 equal portions. Roll out 1 dough portion on a lightly floured surface until 5mm thick. Line ten 2.5cm-deep, 8.5cm (base measurement) fluted tart tins, with removable bases, with the pastry. Trim excess. Place on a baking tray in the freezer for 15 minutes to rest.
        Step 3

        Preheat oven to 190ºC. Use a fork to prick the pastry bases all over. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden.
        Step 4

        Meanwhile, heat half the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook the leek, stirring, for 8 minutes or until soft. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until aromatic. Add mascarpone and cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes or until the mascarpone melts.
        Step 5

        Heat the remaining olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook half the prawns for 2-3 minutes each side or until the prawns curl and change colour. Transfer to a heatproof bowl. Repeat with remaining prawns, reheating the pan between batches.
        Step 6

        Add the tomato and extra virgin olive oil to the prawns. Season with salt and pepper and toss to combine.
        Step 7

        Divide the tart cases among serving plates. Spoon the leek mixture among the cases and top with the prawn mixture and basil. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.
