Makes around 20 palmiers.
- 1 sheet of ready rolled all-butter puff pastry
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 packets of RR. Spink & Sons Cold Smoked Trout
- 40g freshly grated pecorino
- grated lemon zest
- finely chopped chives
- freshly ground black pepper
Layer the cold smoked trout to cover the sheet of puff pastry leaving a 1cm border at the top and bottom of the sheet.
Grate over the cheer using a fine grater and season with freshly ground black pepper.
Roll up the pastry from each long side to meet in the middle.
Brushing with a little egg to help it stick.
Leave to rest in the fridge for 1 hour.
Meanwhile pre-heat the oven to 200C fan-assisted.
Using a very sharp knife, cut the roll into ½ cm slices. They should resemble two spirals stuck together.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the slices at least 2cm apart.
Bake for 12-15 mins until the pastry is crisp and golden.
To serve, sprinkle with grated Pecorino cheese, lemon zest and chopped chives.
