For the sauce, melt 10g/¼oz of the butter in a saucepan, add the shallot and cook, without colouring, until softened.
Add the 120ml/4fl oz of champagne and boil for 2 minutes, then add the stock and sugar.
Boil rapidly until reduced by three-quarters. Add half the cream, bring to the boil and reduce until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of the spoon.
Meanwhile, prepare the salmon escalopes. Remove any bones from the fillet with tweezers or by trapping them between the point of a small, sharp knife and your thumb.
Then, with a large filleting knife or carving knife, cut the salmon into 12 slices about 5mm/¼in thick, holding the knife at a 45-degree angle to the fillet and cutting at a slant down towards the skin. This will give you wider slices.
Brush each escalope with a little of the oil, season lightly with salt and then put them on a lightly oiled baking tray.
Preheat the grill to high. For the sauce, whisk the remaining cream with the 1 tbsp of champagne and 2tsp of the chopped chives until it forms soft peaks. Set aside.
To finish the dish, grill the salmon escalopes for about 1 minute, then put them on four warmed plates.
Bring the reduced sauce to the boil, whisk in the remaining butter, then the whipped cream mixture and pour around the salmon. Sprinkle with the remaining chives and serve immediately, while the sauce is still foaming.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
