  9. Lastly whisk in lemon juice.
  10. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds.
  11. Once cooked stir in the passion fruit. Allow to cool completely.
  12. Make a simple compote by mixing together the fresh diced mango and passion fruit seeds in a bowl, then chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
