Description

The Escovitch Fish Recipe is a traditional Jamaican dish. It is first fried and then covered with a spicy sauce that preserves it. When people did not have electricity, it was one of the most famous dishes to be prepared; as it could be left out for a day or two without spoiling. It is a popular Good Friday menu favorite as well.
