  • ½ a small jar of runny honey, (170g)

  • 1 pear

  • 1 apple

  • 6 strawberries

  • 1 nectarine

  • 1 banana

  • 1 orange

  • 2 sprigs of fresh mint

  • natural yoghurt, (optional)

  • Equipment list

  • small frying pan , (20cm)

  • measuring spoons

  • small microwave-safe bowl

  • microwave

  • chopping board

  • knife

  • teaspoon

  • box grater

This delicious breakfast is super simple, but it's beautiful, tasty, and the action of bruising and grating brings out all the natural sugars in the fruit, creating a wonderful juicy dressing.



1. Place a small frying pan on a medium heat and add the sesame seeds.



2. Toast for a couple of minutes, or until golden, gently jiggling the pan for even cooking.



3. Carefully tip the seeds into a small microwave safe bowl.



4. Mix in the honey.



5. Warm the mixture through in the microwave (800W) for 20 seconds, then carefully place to one side.



6. Pull the stalks off the pear and apple and hull the strawberries.



7. On a chopping board, use a knife to carefully cut all the way around the nectarine in a circle.



8. Hold the nectarine in your hands and twist until you can pull the two halves apart.



9. Pull out and discard the stone from the centre – you can use a teaspoon to help you scoop it out.



10. Peel the banana.



11. Place a box grater on a plate, then on the coarse side, carefully grate all of the fruit, piece by piece, in long strokes.



12. Carefully lift off the grater, leaving a lovely pile of grated fruit on the plate.



13. Carefully cut the orange in half and squeeze the juice over the fruit, using your hand to catch any pips.



14. Drizzle the fruit with 2 tablespoons of the sesame honey (keep the rest for another day).



15. Pick and roughly chop the mint leaves, discarding the stalks, then sprinkle over the fruit.



16. Divide between bowls and serve with a dollop of natural yoghurt, if you like.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
