Flounder With Lemon Cream

Ingredients
  Butter 2 Tablespoon
  Lemon juice 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Lemon zest 1 Tablespoon, grated
  Tarragon 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Fish fillets 4 Small, such as sole or snapper (such as sole or snapper flounder 1 1pounds total or other firmfleshed white)
  Dijon mustard 1 Teaspoon
  Dry mustard 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Heavy cream 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
Directions

1 Preheat the broiler. Line a broiler pan with foil.
2 Melt the butter on the stovetop or in the microwave. In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, 2 tablespoons of the lemon juice, 1 teaspoon of the lemon zest (if using), 1/2 teaspoon of the tarragon, the salt and pepper.
3 Place the fish on the prepared broiler pan. Brush the lemon-butter mixture over the fish. Broil the fish 4 inches from the heat for about 7 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and just flakes when tested with a fork.
4 Meanwhile, in a mixer bowl, combine the remaining 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 2 teaspoons lemon zest (if using), 1/2 teaspoon tarragon, the Dijon mustard and dry mustard.
5 Gradually beat the cream into the mixture in a thin stream. Continue beating until the cream forms soft peaks. Be careful not to overheat, as the lemon juice makes the cream more susceptible to curdling.
