Notes:

The Filipino Escabeche recipe easy to prepare and so good!

Escabeche is a typical Mediterranean cuisine which refers to both a dish of poached or fried fish (escabeche of chicken, rabbit or pork is common in Spain) that is marinated in an acidic mixture before serving, and to the marinade itself. The dish is common in Spanish, Salvadoran, Panamanian, Peruvian, Philippine, Puerto Rican, Mexican and Guatemalan cuisine, and popular in Catalonia, Portugal and Provence.

Tips:

In the Philippines, this dish would be made from a whole 2-pound fish, with the head removed. You can use a red or yellow capsicum in place of the green pepper, if desired.
