To make the salsa, mix all the ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

Blanch the carrots in boiling water for 4 minutes, drain and pass in a pan with the melted butter and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes on medium heat, add the tarragon and season with salt.

Place the oil in a non stick frying pan and heat up. Divide the fillets into 3 lots of 4.
