from USI saw a couple of Cuban recipes submitted recently and wanted to share one that I've had for a few years. I've served it to some of my Cuban friends and neighbors and they really liked this, although I admit it's not my favorite far from it, ...
Courtesy of Cocina Cubana/Sonia Martinez/ Pascual Perez. Escabeche is actually pickled fish. It differs from ceviche in that escabeche is cooked & ceviche is raw fish cooked in the lime juices. Really very good after 1 or 2 days - the fish will keep for 7 days.
This is a bit of work...but is so delicious and perfect in the spring and summer. I like to make this for parties. It's always very popular. If you can't find pickled cauliflower use fresh florets that you have steamed.
