Fish Filipino Recipe

Escabeche is termed as whether a poached or a fried fish marinated in a sweet and sour mixture. It can also be prepared with spices and herbs in order to make it more delicious and attractive. Tilapia (my favorite!), red snapper or even mackerel would fit perfectly as the main ingredient of this Filipino Recipe or cuisine.

Here's my mother's special recipe for this Fish Filipino Recipe!
