palmiers2Palmiers are a delicious French pastry, which can be either sweet or savoury, and so-called as they’re in the shape of a palm leaf.

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.
