Jamaican Escovitch fish

Posted on 1 min read

Escovitch fish is a traditional Jamaican dish usually made with crispy red snapper fish, but you may choose any fish you like. The dish is traditionally served with fried bammy (traditional Jamaican cassava flatbread) or festival (Jamaican deep-fried bread). Rice works beautifully as well.
