  • 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.

  • 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.
