Fried Chicken Friday: Every Friday!

Escoveitched fish is a traditional Jamaican dish served for breakfast on the weekends and normally served with bammies (a type of fried cassava bread). However, you can enjoy this dish any time of day.

It’s similar to a ceviche, the difference being that the fish is fried, not raw. Sometimes escoveitched is spelled escovitch. It’s likely the origins of this dish are Spanish and it was introduced to Jamaica during the 16th century when the Spanish ruled the island. The word escoveitch is a corruption of the Spanish word escabeche, which is used to describe a dish as being pickled and pickling was a great way of keeping food from spoiling in the days of no refrigeration.
