escabeche means: Spanish pickled; sousée; and vegetables, particularly chiles that have been marinated in vinegar. Useful for flavoring and preserving food. Escabeche is most commonly made with chicken and fish. The meat must be fried in order to keep all the ingredients in one dish. Once the meat is fried, a marinade of vinegar, onions and spices will be applied to it. After the dish has been cooked, let it rest for at least an hour before being served. (in Cooking Dictionary)
