- What is it?
Karko is the name for dried pieces of a large fish found in the waters of The Gambia. Though it is found in The Gambia, it has reached peak popularity in Ghana, where our partner farm is located. The large fish are cut up, salted, and dried before reaching Ghanaian markets. There, they are used extensively in cooking to add flavor and amino acids present in fish proteins.
- How should I use it?
Customers who like fish paste, fish sauce, or other salty seafood flavors will enjoy adding karko to their favorite recipes. Stews, soups, and sauces go especially well with some karko. Since it is preserved with salt and not preservatives, karko is a more sustainable, healthier alternative to some other products which employ preservatives such as inorganic sulfites which are known to cause indigestion in some.
