Grand Marnier Zabaglione

We spent Father's Day at my brother in law's house eating our weight in deep fried and grilled fresh fish from his recent fishing trip to Alaska.

I made a couple dishes to go with it that I was not happy with. I'm planning to rework the recipes before sharing them because I think they have the potential to be great!

For dessert...I wanted something light and creamy. This fit the bill and was super simple and fast.

By the way...if you're wondering, Grand Marnier does come in a small bottle. It's not cheap so I'm going to looking for more ways to use it.
