Preheat oven to 350°F. Toss garlic in oil and transfer to a glass baking dish. Roast, shaking the dish occasionally, for 30 minutes, or until golden and soft. Put roasted garlic and milk into a food processor and puree until smooth. Meanwhile, steam potatoes until soft, then mash. Stir in roasted garlic and milk mixture, salt, pepper, tarragon, lemon zest, and 2 teaspoons of the lemon juice. Preheat broiler. Arrange fillets in a baking dish and cover evenly with potato mixture. Drizzle remaining lemon juice liberally over each fillet and broil 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through. Serve fish hot, with lemon wedges on the side.
