Pescado frito or Pescaíto frito, meaning from Spanish fried fish, is a traditional Shabbat fish dish (usually cod) originating amongst the 16th century Andalusian Jews of Spain and Portugal.
Among the ingredients of this dish can be mentioned: fish, limes cut into halves, vegetable oil, mashed fresh garlic cloves, wheat flour, cornstarch, kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper.
The deep-frying of the fish in vegetable oil makes it crisp and light even when eaten cold, and it is a favourite dish of the late breakfast or lunch after synagogue services on Saturday morning. There is a general belief that pescado frito was possibly an inspiration for the English fish and chips.
Pescado frito is a very popular nutritious dish in Spain, Mexico and Dominican Republic.
