Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Preheat grill to high. Season the fish with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Grill on both sides until the fish has clear grill marks, about 6 minutes per side. Remove from the grill, place on a sheet pan, and finish in the oven. Transfer to a warmed platter and brush with Herb Butter Sauce.

To make the sauce: In a small pan, heat the shallots in butter. Add the wine, stock, vinegar, and lemon juice and simmer until reduced by half.
Stir in 3 tablespoons cream. Add half of the tarragon. Whisk in the cold butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, strain and add remaining tarragon and chopped parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
