White Cream Sauce with Tarragon 

This tarragon sauce is my favorite sauce to serve with baked salmon, often I serve it with rice and fennel salad. It might be a pale plate of food, but it is packed with flavors, and truly a meal worthy of a King or Queen.

Serves 4-6.


  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 knorr fish stock cube
  • ¼ cup (½ dl) white wine
  • 1 cup (2½ dl) heavy whipping cream
  • 1-2 teaspoons tarragon 
  • salt and white pepper to taste


Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, cook the onions in the oil until translucent. Add the wine, cream, tarragon and fish stock, and bring it to a boil. Let the sauce simmer for a few minutes. Season with salt and white pepper.

Serve the sauce with baked salmon or another fish.
