Fins Import LLC. is a family business that has roots from Turkey, Istanbul. For more than 45 years, Fins family has been providing high quality gourmet Mediterranean delicatessen to customers in Turkey. When members of the family moved to the United States, they have decided to bring some of their hometown with them. The first item they have started to import has been Lakerda or La Kerrida which is a delicatessen of the Marmara Region. Since then the selection of products have been flourishing to customers and their dinner tables through restaurants and supermarkets. Our passion is keeping these traditions and the quality of flavors while presenting them with modern twists.
The Bosphorus is also a good fishing destination for Bonito, or in Turkish, ‘palamut.’ Similar to the bluefish, bonito is best during the fall and winter months. Bonito has a rich, dark color and firm texture. It’s known by the locals as the ‘quintessential Bosphorus fish.’ Bonito is more economical than bluefish, so it’s often a better option for larger families or those who choose to eat fish more often. Bonito also has a high fat content and only requires a light brush of olive oil and some seasoning before placing it on the grill. If you can’t wait until September for fresh bonito, you can try to find ‘gypsy bonito,’ which is caught further North in the Black Sea as early as July.
