My heart sank when I opened up my bag of fish and I saw these huge eyes staring at me reproachfullly. This was not what I was expecting!

You see, we had been in Kadıköy on the Asian side of the Bosphorus, where we enjoyed a simple fish lunch at one of those bustling little places there – not at all fancy but really nice. You choose your fish from the stall outside, they cook it and then you sit down and eat it. You can even have a glass of wine.

Here's the fish we had last night:
Again sea bream/çipura but this time I bought it from my local supermarket, a 3M Migros. I have to admit that the fishmongers there do a better job of cleaning the fish than they do in the markets, and they did make beautiful fillets out of it.
I marinated it yesterday morning along the lines of Trout with Clout ie with oyster sauce (yes, we can get it here!), soy sauce, and sesame oil. Covered with clingfilm, it stayed in the fridge until I baked it in the oven in the evening.
Very simple as fish usually is yet absolutely delicious.
