  4. Bring the milk and coconut milk to the boil.
  5. Beat the egg yolks, cornflour and sugar together and pour into the milk. Stir over a moderate heat until thick. Don't boil. Cool.

Cooks Tips

- Don't let the strawberries and custard stay in contact for too long before grilling - the strawberries will break the custard down and it won't set.
