Escabeche of Salmon Recipe 

Salmon Escabeche RecipeEscabeche is a Spanish dish of marinated fish or meat with vinegar, wine,  spices and vegetables.
Originally brought to Spain by the Moors, there are now versions all around the Mediterranean. "Escabecio" in Italy, "Savoro" in Greece and "Scabetche" in North Africa.
We're using Salmon for our version but you could use Sardines, Mackerel, or Tuna. You can also use meat, such as Chicken, Rabbit and game birds.
It's really a kind of pickle and will keep for several weeks covered in the fridge.
Delicious cold as a Summer lunch with salad, you can also eat it warm as a light supper.
Eat well - feel full and satisfied and lose those excess pounds without undue effort with this great Mediterranean Diet recipe.
