Balchao is a spicy seafood pickle from Goa. BalchaoWhile prawns are used most of the times, it is not uncommon to use other seafood like mussels, clams, lobster, seer fish, tuna and mackerel; amongst others.
Most people believe that the Balchao is extremely fiery. While this is true when it is tasted on the day f preparation; Balchao is a pickle and should be left for atleast a day before eating. An ideal time for resting would be a week. During this period, the marinade soaks into the seafood and the vinegar mellow the spice to a level which makes this dish very desireable.
