Original recipe yields 2 servings
- Sprinkle salt over the cucumber pieces; allow to sit 1 hour. Strain liquid from cucumbers.
- Combine the whipping cream, mustard, and tarragon in a saucepan over medium heat; add the cucumbers and simmer 8 minutes.
- 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.

"I did made a few adjustments to this recipe only for preference. First I used half and half, not whipping cream (trying to watch fat content a bit). I used dijon mustard instead of regular beacuse it'..." See mores what I had on hand, and added 3 minced garlic cloves and dill weed to the sauce. I also threw in 2 diced roma tomatoes for the last 2 minutes of cooking. I poured the sauce on top of the fish for presentation. It was surprisingly wonderful. Cooked cucumbers can be very strange, but were completely fitting for this dish. I will be making this one again!"

I served the poached fish aside seasoned couscous and topped it with the cucumbers in tarragon sauce; I then topped that with some diced roasted red peppers for appeal. Thank you Dickie, for another way to use up my garden cucumbers."
