What are Cornichons & Goujons?

I found a recipe for Dover Sole that calls for cornichons and goujons. Could you please explain what these are? I think the goujons may refer to pieces of Dover Sole.

Goujon is the French word for small, fried strips of fish, and apparently sole is the most popular catch for this preparation.

Cornichon is also a French word, but is in a little more common usage among English speakers. Cornichons are pickled gherkin cucumbers. In France, these tart pickles are classically served with pts and smoked meats. In other countries, they are apparently served with small, fried strips of fish.
