What is Escovitch?
“Escovitch” is a Jamaican variation of Ceviche. It is a process of cooking whereby fish is usually fried and then doused liberally with a pickling sauce made from vinegar, pimento, onions, pepper and carrots.
In this dish, Chef has used filet of fish instead of frying the fish whole as is traditionally done. You can use a filet of snapper or a light white fish. The marinade only needs to be as spicy as you would like it at home.
