Ever since becoming a new Zaar member nearly 3 yrs ago, my AM Pg has listed the sauces of Europe as among my favorite foods. My cooking roots are American, but my fondness for European sauces has grown & prompted me to enter this recipe from the *Carnival Creations* cookbook by Cyrus Marfatia (Exec Chef of Carnival Cruise Lines). I really don't know if this sauce is European, but I find European sauces more delicate, flavorful & rich w/ingredient combos I would not imagine. This divine sauce was served over a grilled salmon fillet & was the star of the dish, but I bet it would be equally good over most fish entrees & turn a simple chicken breast into something spec. It is admittedly labor-intensive to prepare, times were not given & it was hard to estimate the 3 reductions. So I guesstimated those reduction times, allowed 10 min for ingredient prep & hope I got close. *Enjoy* !
