Lightly flour the salmon. In a large non-reactive skillet, heat the oil, add the salmon, and sauté over moderate heat until golden, turning once, about 3 minutes per side. Set the salmon aside and discard the oil from pan. Add the butter, wine, and salt and pepper to the pan, and bring to a simmer. Add the mustard, fish stock, and lemon juice. Simmer over moderately high heat 5 minutes.
Gradually add the cream, stirring constantly, and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Add the salmon to the sauce and simmer until the fish is well coated and the sauce is reduced to 1/3 cup, about 3 minutes longer.
With a spatula, carefully transfer the fillets to serving plates. Strain the sauce, spoon a little over each fillet, and serve the remainder in a sauceboat. - See more at: http://www.lidiasitaly.com/recipes/detail/93#sthash.7NLkJfcd.dpuf
