LP 14 - Fish Escabeche

Posted by JMom | Thursday, October 05, 2006 | , , | 12 comments »

Whereas the fish used for this dish is traditionally left whole, I used filets of tilapia instead. This is my version:

Tilapia with ginger sweet & sour sauce

See the recipe for Tilapia with Ginger Sweet & Sour Sauce.

    mmmmmmmmmmm my mother used to make this dish often, but I didn't know what it was called. I recognized it from the ingredients and the lovely picture.

    Hi J,

    Hi Jules, I'm usually not too crazy about sweet and sour dishes, but this one is just perfect for the rare times when I do crave it. I like the addition of ginger best.

    Hi Tin! kumusta ka na? Yes, you can use red snapper. I am actually going to cook some snapper tonight. I just haven't decided how yet :)

    Hi Iska, I'm so glad purple girl extended the deadline for LP. So 100% attendance pa rin ako ;)

    Hi babymoi! It seems like this dish is more common in central and southern parts of the Philippines, ha? I know in the north, like Pangasinan and Baguio, it wasn't very common either.

    I will request my friend to cook this for our get-together this Wednesday. Maybe I can prepare the sauce, and she will take care of the fish...

    OMG, LP 14 na pala! I've been so busy too notice. This looks so yummy JMom..one of my favorites!

    Hi Ces, I was worried I wasn't going to make it. I only saw the announcement a couple of days before the deadline. Luckily, PPG extended the deadline.

    Hi Manang, I'll look forward to see what you and your friend cook up. That sounds like a great deal!

    Hi Mita, thanks! I hope makahabol ka rin kagaya ko. Extended day ang deadline sabe ni ppg.

    I tried escabeche with salmon and it has pleasing results. And ate your escabeche looks delish!

    Hey JMommy!

    Good thing you posted about this. I'm not sure if there are still any at the moment but I have been wanting to try the South American version with avocadoes in the sauce.

    Indeed this recipe fuses Spanish and Chinese - very tasty, and very Lasang Pinoy, hehe!
