Shrimp Escabeche

Chopstick Cinema

This Month's Film: Magnifico
Cuisine: Philippine

This was a fantastic variation on the fish version of escabeche. The sweetly piquant escabeche sauce is the perfect complement to the delicate flavor of the shrimp. The last time I made escabeche, I prepared the sauce separately and served it over a whole baked fish. This time, I prepared the sauce, pan grilled the shrimp, and combined the two on the plate. Definitely one for the permanent recipe file.

The recipe will be posted at the end of the month along with my 'Magnifico' film review.
