To make meringue, add the water and sugar to a saucepan to create the syrup.
Heat over moderate heat. With the help of a thermometer brought to a boil at 121 °C.
Meanwhile, the syrup arrives at the right temperature, whip the egg whites with the help of a frullino.
Once the temperature is reached, add the syrup to the egg white, continuing to mount.
Voila! our Meringue.
Decorate each Tartellette by filling them with lime cream, helping you with a sac à poche.
Then take the meringue, arrange it in another sac à poche with a tip for decoration and create tufts.
Take a torch and burn the meringue, so that it is caramelized, finally decorated with slices of strawberry and lime.
