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.
