  2. -- (very thick), -- preferably halibut, -- turbot or monkfish 1/4 lb Streaky bacon

  3. 1/4 lb Mushrooms

  4. 2 sm Onions (or more)

  5. 8 Cherry tomatoes

  6. 1 Lemon

  7. Oil

  8. --FOR THE SAUCE--

  9. 2 ts Honey

  10. 1 Egg yolk

  11. 1 tb (rounded) French mustard

  12. 1 1/2 tb Tarragon vinegar

  13. 1/4 pt Sunflower or safflower oil

  14. 2 tablespoons oil to

  15. 1 tablespoon lemon. Leave to absorb flavours for an hour or more. Halve the bacon rashers, de-rind them, stretch and roll them up loosely. The sauce can also be made in advance. Beat the honey, mustard and egg yolk together in a small bowl. Add the vinegar, a spoonful at a time, whisking it in with a balloon whisk or fork. Then add the oil, pouring it from a jug in a thin stream and whisking the contents of the bowl all the time as you pour. Continue whisking for about a minute until the sauce is a homogeneous thick cream, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Close to serving time, thread the fish, onions and mushrooms on to skewers, adding the bacon rolls and tomatoes here and there. Grill for 10 minutes or so under medium-high heat, turning and basting occasionally with the marinade liquid. Serve immediately with a dish of rice and hand round the sauce separately.
