1 kiwis, sliced crosswise   90 g
1 oranges, sliced crosswise   180 g
1 egg yolks    
1 tbsp Marsala wine, or Port wine   15 mL

Before you start

Using a bain-marie is a must to prepare the sabayon.


  1. Preheat the broiler. Peel the kiwis and oranges, then slice them crosswise and place the slices on individual serving plates. Set aside.
  2. Separate the egg whites and yolks. Set the whites aside in a glass jar with a lid and put them in the refrigerator or freezer for a future use in another recipe. To make the sabayon, put the yolks in the upper bowl of a bain-marie. Pour in the Marsala wine, cold water, and sugar (regular). Cook over very low heat, with constant beating using a whisk, until a creamy sauce is obtained after about 5 min. Portion out the sabayon over the fruit slices.
  3. Put the plates in the oven close to the upper heating element (about 3 cm) and broil about 2-3 min until a crust has formed. Dust with icing sugar and serve right away.
