I'd say thyme would work well - even a bit of rosemary but not too much.

Taragon is a sweet herb with hints of licorice flavor coupled with the pungency of thyme. I would use a touch of anise with the thyme, or maybe some fennel . You could also use chinese 5-spice powder with teh thyme to mimick the tarragon.

Goodweed - while at the grocery store I kept asking myself why I didn't mention fennel - not enough coffee I guess.

E4Fun, you must not like it, as I do not. I always substitute one of a combination of my favorites of thyme, rosemary, sage. It works great, and if it if fish, I will add dill. I
