Torik, a wild caught highly sought after fish from the black sea region. Valued for its meatiness and silky texture. Runs in the same family of Lufer (Bluefish) and Palamut, also known equivalently as the large Bonito or Wahoo. Lakerda is a preparation of salting the fish and naturally preserving in oil. Lakerda made from the fatty Torik is the ultimate choice to go for.
In both Greece and Turkey, Lakerda is usually enjoyed as an appetizer or a part of mezze. It is typically accompanied by some fresh onions and squeeze of lemon juice.
