Citrus Salad

King Prawns Sauteed with Tomato, Fish Sauce and Black Pepper

Citrus Salad – MAKES 6 CUPS

1 grapefruit
1 lemon
2 oranges
2 limes
1 cup water
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 tablespoon orange blossom water
1 tablespoon prepared saffron
2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves

Zest the fruits, taking care to only remove the peel and not the white pith as this is bitter.
Wash the zest.

Place the fruit in the fridge until needed.

In a saucepan, boil the water, sugar and zest. Lower the heat and simmer to reduce the liquid to the thickness of warm runny honey, being careful not to burn the sugar.

Add the orange blossom water and saffron. Stir for one minute and take off the heat and leave to cool down.

Chill for two hours.

Peel the citrus fruits completely, removing all the pith and then carefully separate the fruit into segments.

Place the segments in to a glass bowl and combine with the chilled sauce.

Garnish with mint leaves.
