  1. Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat and add the nuts. Dry fry for 5-6 mins, stirring until golden and toasted, then stir in 1 tsp of the oil with ½ tsp black pepper, a pinch of sea salt and the lime zest. Tip out onto a chopping board, roughly chop and set aside.
  2. Heat 2 tsp of the remaining oil in the frying pan and cook the steaks for 2-3 mins each side for medium-rare, or an extra min each side for medium. Remove from the pan; set aside to rest.
  3. Add the remaining oil to the pan. Fry the sprouts for 3 mins, stirring, then add the kale, carrot and pepper, and continue to cook for a further 5 mins.
  4. Whisk the dressing ingredients together. Thinly slice the steaks, then toss with the vegetables and dressing. Divide between 4 plates and scatter with the cashews to serve.
