When it comes to fish, Istanbul is truly swimming in choices, with dozens of varieties of tasty fish available year round. Unfortunately, salmon – whether fresh or smoked – is somewhat more difficult to get ahold of. Since 2009, Istanbulites with a hankering for good smoked salmon have been able to rely on Delicco, located in the Ünalan district of Üsküdar, one of the best-known local producers/suppliers of smoked salmon products. The company was founded by husband and wife team David Shipman and Dilistan Çilingiroğlu Shipman (both members of the prestigious gastronomic organization Chaîne des Rôtisseurs) and their business partner Cem Atacık.
Delicco imports its fresh salmon from Norway, and makes smoked salmon in the following varieties: Traditional Smoked Salmon, Emperor Cut Loin, Gravlax, and Superior Extra Smoked. 1-kilo bags as well as 100- and 250-gram packages of nearly all the above are available for in-store purchase or delivery. Delicco also makes smoked halibut, eel, swordfish, mackerel, horse mackerel/bonito, and trout upon request.
Orders can be placed by phone at (0542) 475 5889, or by sending an email to the Shipmans at the following address: [email protected]
