Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Spread almonds on baking sheet and toast on middle rack of oven until golden brown, about 5 min. Set aside. (Nuts can be toasted up to 2 days in advance.) Halve or quarter strawberries. In a bowl, mix berries with 1 tsp (5 mL) almond extract or amaretto. Set aside.

  2. Using a double boiler, combine egg yolks, maple syrup and remaining almond extract. Whisk mixture vigorously until it becomes pale, fluffy and doubles in volume, about 8 min. Remove from heat and set aside.

  3. Arrange berries in 6 martini glasses and mound sabayon mixture on top of fruit. Garnish with toasted almonds, a few pomegranate seeds and mint.

Tip

For a brûléed effect, place berries and sabayon in ramekins and quickly graze the top with a kitchen torch.
