Wild Horse Mackerel (Istavrit)
The horse mackerel, also known in Turkey as istavrit is one of our favorite fishes to pan fry or just grill in winter, when they are mostly at their best, fat and large. Fresh caught in the Black Sea by fishermen who leave their nets to cool waters. It is a beautiful oily fish, both for its iridescent, striking skin and its rich, fishy flavour. Slightly briny and sour flavor with sweet umami, a fresh treat from across the ocean!
