Sardines (Headless, Gutted)
All cleaned and gutted. Individually frozen (IQF). Sardines are a nutrient-rich, small, oily fish widely caught from Aegean, Bosphorus and Black Sea regions in Turkey. It is a source of omega-3 fatty acids. Sardines (sardalya in Turkish), a delicacy in Turkish cuisine, are very commonly found in fish markets throughout coastal western regions of Turkey. They are generally prepared grilled or steamed in ovens, most commonly served as a main course alongside alcoholic beverages, most notably rakı, the archetypal Turkish liquor. Particularly in the Gallipoli peninsula (Turkish: Gelibolu Yarımadası) and in the Aegean region of Turkey, sardines are oven-cooked rolled in grape leaves. They are also canned especially in factories in coastal cities such as İstanbul, Gelibolu, Çanakkale, Bandırma, Karadeniz Ereğli, Ordu, and Trabzon.
