   White Wine Sauce:
   ÿÿÿÿÿÿ
   
        In a saute pan heat the butter, then add the
   shallots, and mushrooms.  Cook briefly for about two
   minutes.
   
        Add the wine and 1 cup of fish fume, cook about 5
   minutes more.
   
        Add cream to thicken (sauce should be more white
   than gray). Reduce for 20 minutes, then strain through
   chinois.
   
        Reduce again for 3 - 4 minutes more.  Sauce
   should be thick enough to coat a spoon.
   
        Whip, add salt and pepper and reserve.
   
   Fish:
   ÿÿ
   
        Slice the salmon from the boned fish at an angle,
   about 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick.  Pound the filets thin
   under a dampened plastic paper and store in parchment
   paper until ready to cook.
   
        Salt the salmon lightly inside and out.
   
        In a non-stick pan, heat 2 tablespoons of butter.
   When the butter is hot, take the pan off the heat,
   place the salmon in the pan, return the pan to heat,
   and cook briefly (three to four minutes.)
   
        Remove from heat, turn once, and place back on
   the heat.  Cook for three or four minutes more.
   
        Take the pan off of the heat and turn the salmon
   one last time for the “cool side” to absorb some of
   the juices.
   
        To serve, spoon sauce into a pool on a serving
   plate, place salad in center of the plate, and arrange
   salmon on the salad.
   
        Garnish with red basil leaves.
