  1. Sprinkle salt over the cucumber pieces; allow to sit 1 hour. Strain liquid from cucumbers.
  2. Combine the whipping cream, mustard, and tarragon in a saucepan over medium heat; add the cucumbers and simmer 8 minutes.
  3. Pour the wine into a large skillet over medium heat. Season with salt and add the Bay leaf. Bring the wine to a boil. Lay the tilapia into the skillet, reduce heat to medium-low and cook until the tilapia flakes easily with a fork, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve fish with cucumbers on the side.

This is one of the best recipes for talapia I've tasted. It doesn't overpower the fish, has a nice, light appeal and tastes phenominal. And it's really easy to make.

I was afraid that the sauce would be overpowering on this one, but I was very wrong. The sauce was delicious, but we ended up liking it more on the plain pasta then we did on the fish. I'd nev...

I loved this recipe! It was different than any other fish dish I have made. The combination was refreshing. I used half whipping cream and half milk and it was still yummy! Will make again! :-)
