Karko / Kako Among these seasonings is 'karko'. 'Karko' is a salted large fish caught and produced exclusively in The Gambia in West Africa. Some of the towns that produce it in The Gambia are Banju, Comju and Ghana Town (a place near the beach in The Gambia where lots of Ghanaians reside). The delicacy has names such as 'sine', 'kosile', 'semine' but predominantly called 'karko', an onomatopoetic word that means hardness due to its stiff nature. The fish used for 'karko' is large and often cut into wanted sizes and salted with large quantity of salt for about 24 hours. Then it is dried up under the scorched sun for days to make the salt stick and dry alongside to preserve it - don't mistake “karko” for “mormorni” or “koobi” because the three are different from one another. This Item ships only from Ghana so you get it fresh from the Mankessim market
