Recipe for Cod with a Tarragon Sauce

This sensational sauce goes with any white fish cod, hake, haddock etc. and it is delicate enough to go with lemon sole and plaice. I do prefer this with fresh bass, but these are hard to come by in mid winter, so a couple of cod fillets will make a great Valentines meal!
