    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes, plus cooling

    Serves: 2 (makes 16 tuilles)

    Ingredients

    1 medium Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Egg white
    75g caster sugar
    25g plain flour, sifted
    25g butter, melted
    Grated zest and juice 1 lime
    25g toasted chopped hazelnuts
    25g dark chocolate
    1 small ripe pineapple
    1 small mango
    1/2 x 25g pack fresh mint, leaves only, chopped
    1cm piece fresh root ginger, peeled and roughly chopped

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7.  Line a baking sheet with baking parchment.  Whisk the egg white until holding soft peaks then beat in 50g of the sugar, a teaspoonful at a time.  Fold in the sifted flour, melted butter and lime zest.  Drop teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto the lined baking tray, leaving plenty of room for them to spread.  Make just 4 at a time so you can roll them while still warm before they set.  Spread the batter with a palette knife into 8cm rounds, sprinkle with chopped hazelnuts and bake for 3-4 minutes until pale golden.  While the first batch is cooking, prepare a second tray, and repeat twice more to make 16 tuilles.
    2. Remove each cooked tuille from the tray with a palette knife and wrap around the handle of a wooden spoon to make a cylinder.  Work quickly as they will set firm as they cool.  Leave to cool on wire racks while you cook the rest.  Gently melt the chocolate in the microwave or in a bowl over a pan of simmering water and dip each end of the tuilles into it.  Leave to set.  Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
    3. Peel, trim and stone the fruit then cut into very thin long slices.  Arrange on serving plates.  Whizz the remaining sugar, mint, ginger and lime juice together in a blender and spoon over the fruit.  Chill for at least 30 minutes or for up to 3 hours, then serve with the tuilles.
