Escabeche is also known as sweet and sour fish. This Escabeche Recipe has its Spanish origin. There is another Iberian version of this escabeche recipe where the cooked fish is left to be marinated overnight in a sauce made from wine or vinegar. There is yet another version of the Chinese, wherein the fish is dipped in batter and then fried. The Filipinos have long adapted this Chinese version. This escabeche recipe has a sweet and sour sauce where the batter-dipped fish is soaking.
Escabeche is a Mediterranean dish also found in Latin American cooking incorporating marinated fish with vegetables and herbs. The Galvin brothers use yellowfin tuna in this glorious seafood starter recipe, a fish which works particularly well in sashimi or seared and served rare as it is in this dish.
