2 fillets orange roughy fillets -- cut in half
1 Pound russet potatoes -- peeled
1/2 Cup whole peeled garlic cloves
1/4 Cup lowfat milk
1/2 Teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1 Teaspoon fresh tarragon
2 Small lemons: 1 juiced -- 1 cut in wedges for garnish

Preparation / Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toss garlic cloves in olive oil; place in glass baking dish. Roast for 30 minutes until garlic is golden and soft. Shake the pan several times while roasting. Steam potatoes until soft; mash. Purée garlic with milk; add to potatoes. Add salt, pepper, tarragon, lemon rind and 2 tsps lemon juice. Place fillets in baking dish and cover evenly with potato mixture. Squeeze lemon juice liberally over each fillet. Broil fish for 12–15 minutes, until golden brown and opaque throughout. Serve with lemon wedges. Orange roughy is a small saltwater fish imported from New Zealand and sold as fresh frozen fillets. It has a firm, slightly sweet white flesh which has an adaptable flavor similar to that of flounder. It can be cooked by almost any method and substituted for other mild-flavored white-fleshed fish such as cod, haddock, or flounder.
