How to cook Buttery Tanigue

Buttery Tanigue Recipe is very easy to cook and a delicious seafood dish.  Tanigue, known as Spanish Mackerel in English, is part of the Scombridae family of fishes with tuna, butterfly kingfish, and bonito. This bony fish does have ray-shaped fins. But if you’re asking whether it’s delicious? Well, make no bones about it. To upgrade its taste further, why not combine it with butter?

Now that’s something fishy but for all the good reasons. Mackerel is rich in Vitamin D which acts like a steroid hormone. Also, it has Omega-3 Fatty Acids which help in the optimal functioning of your brain and your body.
