    Poached Salmon with Mushroom Sauce

    1 1/2 pounds skinless salmon fillets
    1 1/4 cups finely chopped fresh mushrooms
    3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
    1 1/4 cups dry white wine
    1 1/4 cups water
    2/3 cup heavy cream
    2 tablespoons butter
    3/4 teaspoon finely chopped fresh tarragon or 1/4 teaspoon dried
    Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
    Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. If necessary, cut fillets into 4 equal portions.
    Arrange mushrooms and onion over bottom of a 2-inch deep skillet large enough to hold salmon in a single layer. Arrange salmon over mushrooms and onion. Pour wine and water over salmon. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and gently simmer about 5 minutes. Undercook salmon slightly; it will continue to cook as it is held. Transfer salmon to a plate. Cover with foil to keep warm.
    Boil mixture in skillet until liquid is reduced to about 2 cups. Add any juices from salmon on plate. Stir in cream, butter and tarragon. Boil until reduced to about 1 cup. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon sauce over salmon and serve.
    Makes 4 servings.
