    Directions

    1. Line a 6 inch square baking dish with foil. Bring the milk to a boil. Slowly add the polenta and 1 tbsp brown sugar in a steady stream, stirring constantly. Cook over low heat for about 5 mins, stirring. Stir in pistachios then transfer to the prepared dish, allow to cool and refrigerate for 5-6 hours.
    2. To finish, toss the melon cubes with honey, lemon juice and herbs and set aside to marinate.
    3. Remove the polenta from the pan and discard the foil. Cut into four 3 inch circles then coat both sides in the remaining brown sugar. Heat the butter in a non-stick frying pan and fry the polenta for 3 mins on each side. Serve with the marinated melon.
