Escabecheng Tangiugue

Escabecheng Tangiuge
Escabecheng Isda is a Pinoy special way of cooking fish. It is usually served on special occasions like fiesta or if there is something to celebrate. There are several versions which depend on availability of ingredients. There are those which prepare it with just the basic ingredients of soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, ginger and onions. And of course those who can afford includes all the other ingredients like different colors of bell peppers, carrots, celery ect. And the more elaborate sweet and sour, with the limitless choice of ingredients like tomatoes or tomato sauce, pineapple or any other fruits ect, see my previous post of sweet and sour maya maya.
