Cream Dory Escabeche Recipe

Last week, Avel Manansala, a very dear friend of ours from General Santos came here to Manila for a visit.  He brought us some Tuna and Cream Dory. Since the past few days, we’ve been eating unhealthy food,  I decided to cook something healthy today.

This is my version of cream dory escabeche, I adjusted the taste to mild sweet and sour taste. I only used the juice of the pineapple to make it a little sour. I only topped the sauce on the fried cream dory just to make the taste of the entire dish balance.


  • 350g whole cream dory fillet cut into 2 portions
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

Defrost the cream dory and season the fish with salt and pepper and let it stand for 30 mins.


  • 1/2 cup cooking oil
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 egg beaten
  • salt & pepper

Beat the egg and dashed it with salt and pepper. Dip the fish with beaten egg and coat them with flour. Remove excess flour befor frying.
Fry them till golden brown and set it aside.

Sauce Part 1

  • 1 can crushed pineapple + juice
  • 2tbsp white sugar
  • 1tbsp “Organic Heinz tomato catsup” or any tomato catsup
  • 2tsp cornstarch mixed to 1/2 cup of water
  • bell pepper sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste

In a bowl, mix the crushed pineapple plus the juice, sugar and catsup. In a separate cup, mix the cornstarch to water and set it aside.

Sauce Part 2

  • 1 medium head of red or white onion quartered
  • 5 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 carrot sliced
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil

Saute garlic and onions then add the grated ginger once the onions is already cooked. Add now the sliced carrots and cook them till done.

Add the sauce mixture and and simmer for 5 mins. Add the cornstarch mixture and stir them till thick.

Lastly, add and stir the sliced bell peppers and simmer for another 5 mins and topped them to the fried cream dory and serve.
