Let's make an example menu for a rakı night in with the on season fishes only. As a starter, you can prepare a fish soup full of vegetables and seafood. The head of a surmullet is ideal for soups and it is really rich in terms of Omega 3 and fish oil.

Maybe your guests appreciate a good fish then get some bass, bluefish or a large bluefish. They are all huge fishes and really delicious as grilled. The only difference that bass is not as fatty as the bluefish and large bluefish.
In case you want to have a fried alternative get some turbot. But keep in mind you can always boil, steam, grill or even cook the turbot in ashes as a whole. Maybe you are a fan of bite-size alternatives, so anchovies are the fish for you. The most common ways of preparation are frying, carpaccio and brining.
Cod is also a fish of winter and really famous because it is the central ingredient in traditional English fish and chips. Create a new tradition and this time have some Yeni Rakı along.
What about some mezze options? Mackerel usually lives in the warm and high seas. 'Çiroz', the dried version of mackerel, is one of the most special and well-known mezze at Yeni Rakı tables. Also, you can prepare a warm and easy to mezze with horse mackerel without picking the bones out of the fish process. Make a fillet, dredge in flour and fry both sides.
