Lemon-Lime Mousse

Lemon-Lime Mousse Recipe

This mousse reminds me of a super light key lime pie filling. It is tangy and just a touch sweet. The mousse is equally as tasty made with just lemons or limes, but I thought the combination gave it a more complex flavor, that tastes like fragrant key limes. The strawberries lend a perfect balance of flavor and texture to the summery dessert.

Lemon-Lime Mousse
Makes: 8 servings
Prep Time: 45 minutes
Level: multiple steps, but all of them are easy

For the mousse:

6 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup juice (lemons and/or limes)
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

For the strawberries:

1 pound fresh strawberries, sliced thin
1/4 cup sugar
1 to 2 tablespoons orange flavored liqueur

To make the mousse:

Make a lemon curd: In a non-reactive saucepan whisk together 4 eggs, 4 yolks (reserve the 4 egg whites), 3/4 cup sugar, salt, juice, and zest. Cook over medium heat while stirring constantly, until it thickens, about 10 minutes.

The lemon curd is done when it is as thick as pudding and coats the back of a spoon or spatula.

Press through a fine mesh strainer. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the lemon curd is cool. Can be made a day or two ahead.

Whip the egg whites and remaining sugar until they reach stiff peaks.

Add 1/3 of the whites to the chilled lemon curd and mix to lighted the texture of the curd. Gently fold the remaining whites in.

Whip the heavy cream with the vanilla extract, until stiff peaks.

Fold just until the cream is smoothly incorporated.

Place the mousse into a piping bag and fill the jars evenly.

To make the strawberries:

Start with very fresh and sweet berries. If they aren’t as sweet as you like, you can add more sugar, or less if they are very ripe.

Mix the berries, sugar and liqueur in a bowl. Let the berries sit for at least 30 minutes, so they release some of their juices. Can be made several hours in advance.

Spoon the berries over the mousse.

They can be served immediately or refrigerated for several hours.
