Spray and line a 20cm x 20cm cake tin with non­stick baking paper.

Place the warm water in an electric mixer, sprinkle over the gelatine, stir to combine and set aside.

Place the caster sugar, glucose and extra water in a medium saucepan over low heat and cook, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved.

Increase heat to high and bring to the boil.

Cook, without stirring, until the temperature reaches 115°C (239°F) on a sugar (candy)thermometer With the mixer on high speed, gradually add the hot syrup to the gelatine mixture, in a thin steady stream, and beat for 3 ­to 5 minutes until thick and glossy.

Spoon the mixture into the tin and smooth the marshmallow into an even layer.

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until set.

Place the icing sugar, lime zest and salt in a food processor and pulse a few times so the lime releases its oil and mixes with the sugar.

Lift the marshmallow onto a board.

Dust a large knife with some extra icing sugar mixture and cut into about 20 pieces.

To serve, dust the marshmallows with the lime sugar.
