Lemon Sabayon with Strawberries


This dessert is for people who like to finish a meal with something that's sweet but not heavy.

  1. 2 pints strawberries, hulled and halved
  2. 1/4 cup sugar
  3. 1 teaspoon finely chopped mint
  4. 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  5. 3 large egg yolks
  6. 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier
  7. 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  1. In a bowl, toss the strawberries with 1 tablespoon of the sugar and the mint. Fill a large bowl halfway with ice cubes and water; set a medium bowl in the water.
  2. In a large stainless steel bowl, combine the lemon juice, egg yolks, Grand Marnier, vanilla and the remaining 3 tablespoons of sugar. Set the bowl over a saucepan containing 1 1/2 inches of simmering water and whisk constantly until the egg mixture is light and thick enough to leave a ribbon trail when the whisk is lifted, about 10 minutes.
  3. Pour the sabayon into the medium bowl set in ice water and whisk until cool, about 5 minutes. Spoon the sabayon into parfait glasses and serve with the strawberries.
Make Ahead The strawberries can be prepared up to 1 hour ahead. Notes One Serving Calories 167 kcal, Total Fat 4.4 gm, Saturated Fat 1.2 gm.
