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, and hung to cure.

The color of the roe ranges from gold to amber. The taste is savory, briny with a hint of almond.

Grated bottarga can be used straight from the jar to season pasta, bitter greens, mashed potatoes, rice or scrambled eggs.

Kinda pricey but adds an unbelievable level of complexity to pasta - way better than any tomato sauce based pasta I've had here in the states. And it's uncomplicated to make too. Extra virgin olive oil, slivers of garlic, red pepper flakes gently sauteed in a saucepan, add bottarga, then al dente pasta (I used spaghetti). Add a little pasta water to loosen if needed. Its what anchovies do to the background of dishes without tasting fishy.

Suggestion for the seller - if you have recipes for bottarga, post them!

Life's pleasures can be as simple as grated fish roe in a good oil.

Although I prefer the tuna roe (see Bottarga Di Tuna (Tuna Roe)), this one has has a lot of merit as well. Especially when grated into salads or as a substitute for anchovies in some recipes like spaghetti alla puttanesca or spaghetti con aglio e olio (spaghetti with garlic and oil.) Especially in salads or in spaghetti alla puttanesca the tuna roe version does not marry well with the other ingredients and can mask flavors if you are not careful. This roe, on the other hand, seems to go perfectly with those dishes.

First rule of using this or any bottarga: do NOT cook with it. Instead grate it over a finished dish before serving in much the same way you would a fine, hard cheese. I learned the hard way that cooking it into a recipe guarantees you will have a salty, bitter dish that only a Klingon would enjoy.

When I was researching this product I learned that Cabras, Sardinia is renowned for their high quality bottarga, and it shows in the quality. In the process I also came across a recipe that proved to be delicious beyond my imagination and is now fare that I serve guests whom I really want to impress: brown shallots or onions in high quality olive oil, add fresh tuna and braise on all sides. Then add capers and chopped tomatoes. Salt to taste (I also use black and red pepper). Toss into an authentic Sardinia pasta like La Casa del Grano Pasta - Is Malloreddus (also known as gnocchetti Sardi), season with this grated bottarga di muggine and serve.

Wonderful product for enhancing the flavor of soups and sauces. Use for stocks and pasta sauces or for sauces for grilled or broiled fish.
