I found this recipe in a 1993 Bon Appetit. I bought some wild mushrooms at the farmer's market, and wanted to use them with salmon I had, but you could easily do this with steak too. I would recommend any kind of mushrooms except for your average button or morels (the flavor wouldn't be good with the fish I don't think). The clam juice is not the tomato-based one - it's sort of clear, but in the same aisle.

Directions

  1. Melt the 4 tbsp butter in a large skillet over med. heat. Add the shallots and saute 2 minute Increase heat to med-high. Add mushrooms and saute until beginning to brown, about 8 minute
  2. Add clam juice and wine. Boil until liquids are syrupy and almost evaporated, about 20 minute
  3. Add cream and boil until thickened, about 1 minute Mix in tarragon, season with salt and pepper.
  4. Preheat broiler or grill. Place salmon skin side down on rack. Brush with lemon juice, then the melted butter. Broil or grill, without turning, until just cooked through, about 7-8 minutes. Transfer to plates. Spoon mushroom mix over the top.
