How to cook buttered lemon tanigue

  • In a pan stir-fry garlic with cooking oil until fragrant. Then place the 1/2 cup butter in the pan and allow to melt in moderate heat stirring occasionally.
  • Pour the melted sauce in a plastic container and place in the freezer to allow the sauce to solidify.
  • Rub salt and pepper on the tanigue slices and drizzle with lemon juice let stand to marinate for at least 15 minutes.
  • In a nonstick pan melt 1 tbsp butter and pan grill the tanigue slices one by one for 2-3 minutes each side at moderate heat or you can adjust the cooking time depending on your desired result but overcook to keep the fish moist.
  • Place in a serving platter. Top with a scoop of semi solidified butter garlic and tanigue steak and serve. Garnish with lemon slice and parsley if desired.
