Baked Escovitch Fish

Escovitch Fish

One of my hands down favorite kinds of fish is escovitch fish. It’s a Jamaican dish featuring fried fish that is served with pickled vegetables. I’d eaten it millions of times but had never attempted to make it myself. I figured that if the fish was baked at a high temperature, I could achieve a result similar to frying. Rubbing fish with lemon juice prior to cooking eliminates the rank smell that cooked fish can have and the pickling liquid gives it a really nice flavor.

My ideal morning is fairly lazy and starts around 8:00 AM. It’s spent lounging about in pajamas and a robe while sipping a piping hot cup of tea, eating a good breakfast, and watching home improvement or interior design shows. One of my favorite sit-down breakfasts on these mornings is ackee and saltfish, the national dish of Jamaica.

I love shellfish and sushi but I’m fairly picky when it comes to regular cooked fish. I find that the taste of regular fish tends to be too strong for my liking and I tend to avoid cooking it for myself. However, that doesn’t prevent me from aspiring to eat more fish whenever I visit the fish market.
