Fill with small beans or lentils (or whatever you use for blind baking). Bake for 15 minutes (watch that the edges do not brown).

Peel 200 g langoustines (scampi).

Melt 20 g butter in a frying pan, and when hot, tip in the scampi. Fry "sauté" (fry while tossing gently) for 1 or 2 minutes, just until they begin to brown a little (be careful not to overcook them).

Stage 8 - 5 min.

Stage 9 - 5 min.

Finish with a coating of hollandaise sauce.

Serve immediately.

Remarks

The most difficult thing with this recipe is serving it all hot. It is better to take your time preparing everything, then reheat it all (except the hollandaise sauce, which should be kept warm) and fill the tarts at the last minute.
