5. Divide the panna cotta equally amongst the 8 ramekins. Allow to cool for 15 minutes. Cover the baking sheet with a lid or plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours.

6. While the panna cotta chills, make the strawberry sauce. Place the strawberries, sugar, and salt in a pan. Stir over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the berries break down, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes in the pan. Transfer the strawberry mixture and lemon juice to a blender, and blend until smooth.

7. Place a fine sieve over a bowl and strain the strawberry mixture. Press with the back of a spoon to release the sauce into the bowl. Cover and chill while the panna cotta sets.
