Citrus-Infused Custard Sauce

['1 cup whole milk', '1 cup heavy cream', '4 (3- by 1-inch) strips orange zest removed with a vegetable peeler', '4 (3- by 1/2-inch) strips lemon zest removed with a vegetable peeler', '2 large eggs', '1/3 cup sugar', 'pinch salt']

Bring milk and cream to a simmer with citrus zests in a 2-quart heavy saucepan over medium-low heat.
Whisk together eggs, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl, then whisk in hot cream mixture.
Return mixture to pan and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until custard is thick enough to coat back of spoon (160° to 165°F on an instant read thermometer), about 2 minutes.
Immediately remove pan from heat and strain custard through a fine sieve into a bowl, discarding zests.
Serve warm, or at room temperature, or chill to thicken.
