After a long week of my business traveling, my wonderful retired husband (now past---God rest his soul) would pick me up at the airport and fix this delicious dish, while toasting the coming weekend with the extra champagne. This is wonderful!

    The salmon and sauce had a nice soft flavor, but I wasn't wowed by the sauce. I used leftover champagne instead of fresh, which could make a big difference.

    Yummy! This salmon recipe was so simple to make, and the presentation was truly beautiful with the shallots and tarragon mixed into the champagne sauce. I especially loved how the sour cream and mustard really balanced the sweetness of the champagne. I made this with fat free sour cream (which reduces the saturated fat to 1g/serving), and it still came out great! There was plenty of sauce for the 2 salmon fillets. This will be added as one of my favorite salmon recipes! Thanks to my PAC Spring '07 baby Caroline for the delicious recipes!
