    Directions

    1. Melt 1/8 cup butter in a saucepan and sauté half the shallots until softened. Add the sauerkraut, cloves, juniper berries and bay leaf and sauté for 2 mins. Add 1 2/3 cups champagne and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 15 mins.
    2. Stir in the crème fraîche or sour cream and cook, uncovered, for 5-10 mins, until the mixture begins to thicken. Season with salt, black pepper and a pinch of sugar. Keep warm.
    3. Season the fish with salt and black pepper. Melt 1/8 cup butter in another saucepan and sauté the remaining shallots until softened. Pour in the fish stock, vermouth and remaining champagne, bring to a boil and simmer for 5-10 mins, until reduced by half. Add the fish and carrot, cover and simmer over a low heat for 6 mins.
    4. Remove the fish and carrot along with a little stock from the pan and keep warm. Purée the remaining fish stock in a blender. Return to the pan and heat through. Gradually whisk in the frozen butter pieces. Season with salt and black pepper.
    5. Arrange the fish, carrot and sauerkraut on plates. Pour over the sauce and sprinkle with the tarragon.
