The Pinoy escabeche is basically sweet and sour using the simplest ingredients. For the souring ingredient we just use vinegar, for sweetness of course just sugar and some soy sauce a very common ingredient in Pinoy cooking for added saltines. For the aromatics just ginger, garlic and onions, the basic aromatic ingredients for most Pinoy households.


The additions of some colourful ingredients is even an options like bell pepper, carrots spring opinions. The truth is any firm flesh fish may be used like salmon ect. Here is the recipe of my Escabeche, Escabecheng Barramundi.
