Slice both ends of the grapefruit. Stand on one end and following the curve of the grapefruit, take off peel and pith. Segment by slicing in between membranes.

Blanch green beans in boiling water for 1 – 2 minutes until tender. Refresh in iced water.

In a frying pan, cook cashews stirring for 2 – 3 minutes until lightly roasted.

Roughly chop and set aside. Season fish and gently poach in the stock for 8 – 10 minutes.

Toss the grapefruit, beans, coriander and spring onions with the lime dressing.

Arrange on a serving plate, place fish on top and sprinkle with the roasted cashews.

Lime dressing

Stir together all the ingredients until the sugar is dissolved.
