Escabecheng Talakitok
Escabecheng Talakitok. On this post is my version of yellow tinted escabecheng isda. Talakitok can be substituted with any fish but I would suggest white flesh fish. This is mainly for the reason that it will look more vibrant with the yellow sauce. The fish I used for this dish is about a kilo in size and weight. I want it serve as is, one whole fish with all the yellow sweet and sour sauce pour over it. I have to use an oval frying pan for the job. Don’t worry if you don’t have this kind of frying pan. You can always cut the fish in half to for easier frying. Just arrange the fish back together in a big platter before pouring the sauce over, otherwise use sliced fish instead.
