Catfish Escabeche with Peppers and Mushrooms

Serves 4 to 6
Time 6 hr 15 min
Light and refreshing, this dish has similar origins to ceviche, except the fish is cooked before marinating. Serve with crostini, if you like, or spooned into individual serving cups.
Ingredients
  • 2 pounds catfish cut into 4-inch pieces
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 red onion very thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper very thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup enoki mushrooms trimmed
  • 1/2 cup pitted green olives sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 3/4 cup white wine vinegar more if needed
Method

Preheat the broiler. Toss catfish pieces with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Broil 4 inches from heat, until cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

In a large mixing bowl, combine fish with onion, bell pepper, mushrooms, olives, parsley, capers and paprika. Place in a glass or ceramic casserole or dish and add vinegar and remaining oil to cover fish. If fish is not covered completely, add a little more vinegar. Do not stir. Cover container with plastic and refrigerate at least 6 hours or overnight. Adjust seasoning and serve.
