4. In a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water, whisk together eggs, egg yolks, sugar, coconut milk, lemon zest and lemon juice.

5. Whisk in cornflour. Cook while whisking, until mixture is translucent and thick enough to mound on spoon, or dip into a wooden spoon and run your finger down the back. If the track keeps its shape it’s ready, (about 8 minutes).

6. Strain into a bowl. Place plastic wrap directly onto surface and chill for at least an hour. A wide flat bowl works best for this.

7. Spoon lemon curd into crust, and sprinkle with dried coconut. For an extra special treat, you can also sprinkle with shaved white chocolate.
