Freeze the rolled pastry (step 2), wrapped in non-stick baking paper and cling film, for up to 1 month. Defrost fully in the fridge, then slice and bake as in the recipe.
The baked palmiers will keep for 1-2 days in an airtight container at room temperature. Briefly refresh on a baking tray in a low oven before serving.
Zhoug is a Yemeni spice paste made from coriander, cloves, parsley and green chilli. We used the Belazu brand (from Ocado, Waitrose and Sainsbury’s). Use it up as a wet rub for meat or stir into rice or couscous for a spicy, fresh flavour.
Experiment and use up ingredients; swap mint for parsley or coriander, use harissa in place of zhoug, add any nuts you have to hand, or use a crumbly goat’s cheese instead of feta.
Make it a fresh French sauvignon blanc for the palmiers, such as a light, lemony Touraine.
