Smoked Mackerel and Leek Tart

This is a  rich tart, although a combination of smoked haddock and leek is more traditional in practice smoked mackerel is more easily available . We seem to get leeks in the vege-box all year round , I have made lovely leek pea and feta frittatas before but I really love making tarts and quiches there is something rustic and elegant about them, usually eaten with a big leafy salad but new potatoes would also work well too.

    You love smoked mackerel! (I do too, and have some waiting in the fridge for me.) How much did you use in the way of leeks?
