Melt butter in medium skillet. Add shallot and sauté 2 to 3 minutes. Season salmon with salt and pepper to taste. Sauté salmon 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove to plate (salmon won't be completely cooked). Add whiskey, vinegar and tarragon to skillet and simmer 1 minute. Add cream. Season with salt and pepper. Return salmon to skillet, cover and cook 1 to 2 minutes per side. Divide fillet in half. Arrange half on each of 2 plates. Top with sauce and serve with lime wedges on the side.
