Prepare the grapes and Cream Sauce.
Season the fillets with salt and pepper, and if they are small, fold each in half or roll up and pin with toothpicks.

Saute the onion in 2 tablespoons of the butter until tender.
Add Bouquet Garni, wine and 1/4 cup water.
Bring to a boil.
Pour into a bake dish.
Arrange fish on top.
Cover and bake at 425F for 10 to 15 minutes, or until fish flakes easily.
Meanwhile, simmer the grapes in 2 tablespoons melted butter, until hot, and keep warm.
Drain liquids from the fish into a saucepan and simmer uncovered until reduced to 1/2 cup, then add slowly to the beaten egg yolk.
Stir into the Cream Sauce and taste for seasoning.
Cook for 2 minutes.
Pour over the fish and scatter the grapes around the outside.
