This is the Puerto Rican version of Spanish escabeche (ceviche); its vinegary taste pairs beautifully when layered over starchy plantain mofongo. Escabeches are made with many different seafoods; try it with shrimp or octopus.

  1. Season fish with salt and pepper. In a large sauté pan, heat olive oil over medium heat; then add fish and sauté until opaque, 3–4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to a deep plate and keep warm.
  2. In the same pan, sauté onion with garlic and bell pepper until translucent, 5 minutes. Add capers, piquillo pepper, vinegar, bay leaf, oregano, and cilantro; season with salt and mix well. Pour over cooked fish. Let cool to room temperature. Serve with avocado slices and lime wedges.
