  • 1 1/3 lb cod or haddock, cut into cubes


  • 2/3 cup French shallots, minced
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp maple vinegar (or sherry vinegar)

  • 2 tbsp fresh tarragon



  1. Preheat oven to 160° C (325° F).
  2. Place fish cubes on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper and cover with another sheet of waxed paper (to keep the fish from drying out). Bake 15 – 20 minutes.

  2. Add the maple vinegar and white wine, and reduce by half.
  3. Add the salt and then, off the heat, gradually incorporate the cubes of cold butter.
  4. At the last moment, add in the tarragon and Charles-Aimé Robert.
  5. Serve the butter sauce on the fish.


If there’s leftover sauce, use it with pasta for your next meal.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
