Bake Lemon-Butter Tanigue Fish Recipe

This recipe was inspired by The Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook: Low-Carb, High-Fat Recipes for Busy People on the Keto Diet; by the name of the book itself you would get a hint why I chose this one with the other many options. First, the recipes are easy and take no to little time to cook, and above all else, it only takes around 5 ingredients to make them.

Though the original recipe use tilapia, I decided to replace it with Tanigue Fish (King Fish) for personal reason. And instead of the Pink Salt, which I could not find in the grocery stores near my area (but I have already ordered online), I use the iodized salt available in my kitchen.

Tip: You could use any mild white fish with this recipe like tilapia or salmon which is delicious with the lemon butter sauce.
