Mahi-Mahi Escabeche (Mahi-Mahi Fish in Sweet and Sour Sauce)

This was one of my specialties (I had a few) back in Philippines. Aside from cooking Adobo Kangkong very well, I can also cook escabeche pretty well. Mom trusted me when it comes to fish escabeche. By the way, Kangkong is similar to spinach cooked with a little bit of soy sauce and spices. Mmmm, I'm drooling...

Below are a few pictures of my Escabeche preparation. I use Mahi-Mahi fillets.

Fried the fish fillet first.
Then add this to a sauted garlic, onion, red bell pepper, ginger and tomatoes on a skillet.

Add the solution of 1/4 cup vinegar, 1/8 cup soy sauce, 1 tbsp sugar and let it boil.

Mix 1 tbsp corn starch with 1/4 cup water and add to the skillet. You may adjust the measurement to achieve your desired taste (sourness and sweetness).

Simmer until the sauce thickens. Then remove from the skillet. I added some onion leaves on top of the dish :)

Serve with rice. mmmmm

Prepare a glass of water or cold Iced Tea :) (para di matuk-an!)
