Fish Escabeche is a sweet and sour fish dish. There many several versions of Fish Escabeche around.

The version that  here is maybe one of the simplest of all. However, even though it’s  a simple recipe it makes a delicious dish!

I grew-up eating different kinds of fish. I enjoy both fried fish dishes and fish dishes with sauce. I am always excited to have this dish because I personally think that the result of fried fish being cooked in this type of sauce is truly amazing. You get the good flavor of the sauce while enjoying the texture of the fish — that isn’t too soft in the least. Having fish escabeche is like eating fried fish with a touch of atchara.

A really wonderful dish that is prepared in quarter-hour or less. Fish Escabeche is a great family dish that require a great amount of preparation.
