Escoveitch Fish is a Jamaican-style fried fish that is drizzled all over with Escoveitch pickled hot peppers. This type of fish is sold all over the island of Jamaican and is usually eaten with “fried bammy or festival.” The fish that my family usually used to make this recipe are small snapper or parrotfish.
