I'm not sure how many people your recipe is intended to serve, because that is not mentioned in the recipe, but tarragon has a very potent flavor. Although it is one of my favorites, I would still recommend using a very light hand with it in all cases, so its flavor doesn't take over the dish at hand.

The terms "gindara" which is cod, and "tanigue" -- King Mackerel are not generally used in US. Do you often use the same preparation for a strong fish such as mackerel that you use for a gentler fish, like cod?

I agree with you, Babe. but when used sparingly, tarragon is really great with fish or chicken. In fact, all herbs need to be used with a light hand. Any and all can be overpowering (including garlic) when too much is added to a dish.
