Preparation steps

Soak the gelatine in cold water. Put the lemon juice, apple juice, a pinch of chilli flakes and the fish sauce in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Squeeze the excess water out of the gelatine and stir into the liquid so that it dissolves.
Line a flat, rectangular dish with cling film and pour in the lemon jelly. Leave in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to set.
Whisk the soy sauce with the sherry and honey and add the cubed tofu. Leave to marinate for approx. 30 minutes.
Heat the oil in a frying pan and brown the tofu on all sides.
For the sauce, bring the stock to the boil with the honey, lime juice and 1/2 tsp lime zest. Mix the cornflour with 1 tbsp water and add to the stock. Bring to the boil then remove from the heat and add the tofu.
Cut the jelly into cubes of roughly 3 cm. Arrange on spoons with a piece of tofu, a prawn, one onion ring and one coriander leaf. Place the spoons on a serving plate and garnish with slices of lime.
