It is the closest fish shop to Gumusluk villa and probably has the freshest fish. One medium sized sea bream is about £2 to £3.
Alternatively we go to ‘Kipa’ (the Tesco Hypermarket in Bodrum): it has a massive display of fish. There is a whole counter with all varieties of fish on ice. There is also a large slab or island, standing on the sales floor, with a mountain of today’s fresh fish piled gullet to tail on a crushed-ice bed. It was an impressive display of sea bream (or was it red mullet) when I saw it. I remember being surprised that there was no smell of fish; it was as if they had presented themselves that morning directly from the Aegean.
Luckily on our first fish-buying expedition we were with our French friend, Anne-Lise. She educated us on the need for such things as ‘de-scaling’ and ‘gutting’. To achieve this we took the fish to the fish monger (or did we just point) and made gesticulations of cutting fish and running a pretend knife up and down the imaginary scales. It seemed to do the trick. We came back in five minutes and voila!
