Snapper Fillet Pinoy Escabeche Style
Snapper Fillet Pinoy Escabeche Style. I am still having some of the snapper fillet that I used on my Fried Snapper Pinoy Bistek Style. Today I pan fry and cooked them Pinoy escabeche style. Fish escabeche Pinoy style is simplier version of Sweet and Sour dish. It requires few ingredients. It is tasty sweet, salty and gingery.
The fish is first fried either crispy or just pan fried. The escabeche sauce is prepared separately. The escabeche sauce is either poured over the fried fish or the fish is quicky simmered with the sauce for the flavors to be infused with the fish. As long as you have a good balance of sweetness and saltines of the escabeche sauce, you will never go wrong.
I have some escabeche, and sweet and sour posted before. Should you are looking or want to try some of my versions of fish and meat escabeche and sweet and sour just click the link list below to check the recipes.
