I have had "drunken whatever" but this is the first time I have had a chance to try drunken fish!!! A little too, too spicy(hiatal hernia)but I ate it anyway & it is delicious. Had this at Gail's house and was hoping to have it posted by El Cinco de Mayo but am just inputting(05/05/08/)t. This is delicious with rice(you know how we Cubans are!)and with guacamole, salsa & tostones!!! That is how we had it! Wonderful! Didn't include resting or cooling times.
