For a fresh take on flounder, Phyllis Schmalz, Kansas City, Kansas, came up with an oven-baked, lightly breaded fillet teamed with tarragon tartar sauce. Lake perch, tilapia, sole and orange roughy work just as well in her recipe.

"it was very tasty! i would reduce the amount of garlic added for the tarter sauce, it was a bit too strong, but some may like that."
