Drain, throw away parsley/tarragon bundle, set aside tomato pulp. Bring liquid to a boil, and add in cream. Cook over moderately high heat, stirring constantly, about 3 min. Add in butter fairly rapidly, 2-3 Tablespoons at a time, stirring constantly. Cook till butter is melted and sauce is smooth. Add in the tomato pulp, remaining garlic, thyme and wine. Bring to simmer, then remove from heat. Cut salmon cross-grain into four equal pcs. Brush lightly on both sides with extra virgin olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Reheat sauce and add in minced parsley, chives and tarragon. Bring to a simmer, stirring. Spoon portions of the sauce onto heated dinner plates. Place salmon in center of the sauce, garnish with sun-dry tomatoes, and serve.
