Escabeche refers to a clear, tangy onion soup with large pieces of chicken. It is one of the traditional dishes from Belize.

My Auntie Monique who lived with us until we grow old used to make Escabeche, made of fried fish with sweet and sour sauce which she cooked from a mixture of sugar and vinegar spiced with ginger and lots of julienned green and red pepper. This Filipino Escabeche is served as a main dish and eaten with rice.
