Recipe: Grilled Tanigue

Happy foodie Tuesday!

This week, I will share with you a recipe on how to grill Tanigue. I made this for our dinner last week. Tanigue is Spanish Mackerel in English.

 Grilled Tangigue


  • 3 pieces of Tanigue
  • chopped garlic
  • butter
  • salt & pepper
  • Bragg Liquid Aminos
  • lemon (optional)

For preparation and how to grill Tanigue, read after the break...

Preparation instructions:

  1. Add salt & pepper on both sides of Tanigue
  2. In a pan, brown chopped garlic (low heat)

Lemon Butter sauce:
  1. In a pan, melt a tablespoon of butter (low heat)
  2. Squeeze 1/4 lemon
  3. Wait until it sizzles then remove it from the pan
  4. Your dipping sauce is now ready

Step 1: In medium heat, add butter to the grilling plate

You can also use Olive Oil as an alternative. I prefer to use butter because I like the smell of butter when I am grilling.

Step 2: Add Tanigue and more butter on top

At this point, you may also put a dash of liquid seasoning on the meat. 

Step 3: Cook until there is no blood oozing out of the meat

You can also check the doneness of the meat by sticking a fork at the center. If there's no blood, then you can flip the meat and cook the other side.

brown/toasted garlic

Step 4: Add a generous serving of garlic on top

It takes about less than 15 minutes to cook this dish and serves 3 persons. It is best served with warm rice ; )

I hope you can try this recipe in your own home and enjoy grilled Tanigue as much as we did!
