Expert Tips

Fish escabeche is one of the traditional meals found in Christian homes during Lent, when many forgo meat for fish or seafood. I remember that my mom would prepare tons of escabeche to avoid having to cook a lot during the week. She would leave it marinating in a glass container with a lid, and she would also make seafood salads during this time.

You can add thinly sliced carrots to the recipe.

Directions

  • 1 Season the fish with salt and pepper. Panfry the fish in batches (about 2 minutes per side) in 2 tablespoons of canola oil and transfer to a platter.
  • 2 For the escabeche: Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of canola oil in a skillet.
  • 3 Add the onions, garlic, bell pepper, bay leaves, olives and pepper.
  • 4 Cook over low heat for 3 to 5 minutes so that the onions don’t soften too much.
  • 5 Add the olive oil and vinegar, stir well and let cook for 15 minutes over low heat.
  • 6 Pour the mix over the fish fillets and let marinate from 6 to 24 hours. The more time you let it marinate, the more flavor it will have.
