Simple! A tartine is just a slice of bread or toast that has a sweet or savory topping. Just think of it as the french word for an open faced sandwich. You can get fancy with it, kind of like what I’ve done with this one (even though it comes together in a pinch!) or you can keep it simple with a just some butter and jam.

Tips for making this Smoked Salmon Tartine
When you are prepping the tomatoes to roast them, try and get as much liquid out of them as possible. This will help them roast instead of steam and they won’t be as soggy.
If you don’t like fresh dill you can swop for chives, and if you don’t like smoked salmon, just add more roasted tomatoes and it is still totally delicious!
You can seriously put anything on a piece of toast, so try out different things to see what your favorite is!

Smoked Salmon Tartine with Roasted Tomatoes
- baking sheet
- 2 slices sturdy bread, I prefer sourdough
- 1 lb roma tomatoes
- 4 tbsp olive oil divided in half
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1/4 cup crème fraîche
- zest of half a lemon
- 1 mini cucumber
- 2 tsp salt divided in half
- First let's get the tomatoes roasting. Preheat the oven to 400°F and line your baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the tomatoes into halves or 1/4ths, depending on the size, and then scoop out the seeds as much as you can. Place them skin side down on the baking sheet and drizzle 2 tbsp of olive oil over them and sprinkle 1 tsp of salt. Roast in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until they are slightly starting to char.
- Next you will want to whip up your crème fraîche spread by mixing the crème fraîche and lemon zest together in a small bowl.
- While the tomatoes are roasting, prepare the bread to go in the oven to crisp up by mixing the remaining 2 tbsp of olive oil and red pepper flakes together in a small bowl. Lay the bread slices out on a baking sheet and brush the red pepper oil all over them, on both sides. Once the tomatoes come out, turn the heat to 350°F and bake your bread for 8 minutes, or until it turns golden brown.
- Now it's time to assemble! Place a slice of bread down, spread with half the crème fraîche spread, and then layer it with smoked salmon and roasted tomatoes. Your garnishes are thinly sliced mini cucumber which you can use a vegetable peeler to peel, and fresh dill. Place some of both of these on top of the smoked salmon and tomatoes until it fills your hearts desire! Sprinkle with a little extra flakey sea salt, repeat with the other slice of bread and enjoy!
