Place the lime zest and juice, sugar, star anise, and 150ml (5fl oz) water in a saucepan and heat, gently stirring, until the sugar has dissolved. Increase the heat and boil for 5–10 minutes, or until reduced and syrupy. Remove from the heat.
Meanwhile, peel the lychees, and remove the stones, if you wish. Place in a serving bowl. Chop the ginger and add to the lychees, with a little of the ginger syrup.
Strain the cooled sugar syrup through a sieve over the lychees. Allow to cool completely then chill until required. Add the star anise as decoration but do not eat it.
