Lovely low-fat menu for 4
Sometimes dieting can feel like a real penance, but not with this menu for four people! Non-dieters will also enjoy the fresh flavours of the Thai bean salad starter, swordfish ceviche and refreshing jellies. And the good news is that the main course and dessert can both be made in advance.
In Thailand, they use pomelo in salads, which is very similar to grapefruit. I have used pink grapefruit here, but when they're not available, you could ring the changes and use a thinly sliced, medium-sized mango.
Ceviche is a dish in which fish is 'cooked' in lime or lemon juice with lots of other gutsy flavours. I love to serve it on a hot summer's day, but it's good at any time of year when you want something really interesting that doesn't contain any added fat.
This is a cheat's recipe. The tropical fruit juice comes freshly squeezed – in a bottle from the supermarket. And, what's more, this really beautiful dessert contains virtually no fat.
