Product Description

This Mediterranean delicacy is sometimes called the poor man's caviar. Bottarga , in this case, is the roe pouch of the grey mullet.

In September, well fed mullets in the ponds of Cabras on the Central Western Coast of Sardinia swim into the nets of fishermen of Fratelli Manca, and the process begins.

The mullets' eggs are skillfully extracted, washed, purified, salted, cured into a dry hard slab which is coated in beeswax for preserving.

The color of the roe ranges from gold to amber. The taste is savory, briny with a hint of almond.Thinly slice or shave the slab directly on toast, or season pasta, bitter greens, mashed potatoes, rice or scrambled eggs.

How to store: Once opened, wrap the bottarga in plastic and put it in the fridge for up to months of delicious bottarga =)

I bought a small package of Bottarga di Muggine (grey mullet roe) and was not quite sure how to use it. Received an e-mail from Gustiamo with encouragement and recipes. Made all the difference. This is a small company who takes great care of its customers, and I will certainly make purchases from them again.

Took a while to arrive but once it was here it was pretty good. Have had it once and there is only about enough for two meals for two people so it is definitely pricey but for an indulgence once in a while not too bad. Could probably find it somewhere in SF for about the same price without paying the unreasonable shipping cost so I'll probably look around for the future.

I tried Bottarga in Sardinia a few summers ago and have been looking for it ever since in the States. Finally I found it here! This Bottarga is so good it makes me feel I'm back in Sardinia! I like it thinly sliced with some celery and olive oil.

Updated review:
===============
After I posted the below review the seller contacted me and sent me a new unit for Free. The new one was as fresh as they get and very tasty. And they even told me to keep the old one. So I'm raising my grade to 5 star for the taste and even more for the outstanding service. As I see it mistakes can happen to anyone - but taking ownership of them and correcting them is what makes the difference!

Original review
===============
I was really looking forward to getting this as it is a favorite of mine (I usually get it with relatives from France). But... When it arrived it had a very dark brown color instead of brown redish as it should be. It is clearly a very old product and it will be returned un-opened... :-(

I grew up on the OuterBanks of North Carolina and my Scottish Grandfather was a mullet fisherman with a 250 yard cork and lead line net. I grew up eating mullet roe the way the Guthrie's always salted and dried them in the sun. Cooking them in a little coconut oil in a cast iron skillet gives them the best flavor. I just received my large order from Gustiamo heated up the skillet and now munching on half a roe.

Posso chiudere gli occhi e vedere mio nonno girando la bottarga di muggine in padella. Sono deliziosi e il prossimo mese di aprile, spero di ordinare più. Eccellente. Almost eaten.

I was happy with the purchase, I would buy it again. I was a little concerned with the color when I received it , it was much darker than the picture, and I have never cooked with it before, so I was not sure what it should look like. However, I grated it over pasta with some olive oil, capers, and roasted garlic, and I thought it was great, but I have never had it before, so I have no frame of reference with which to compare it. The shipping was prompt.
