Smeralda Bottarga di Muggine or Cured Grey Mullet Roe in English is one of the greatest Sardinian products of the Italian culinary tradition. Bottargas are salted and pressed fish roe kept for three to four months in a dark and ventilated room until settled and ready for use.
Bottarga has high protein content and is very rich in Omega3 fatty acid; it is amber in color and has a decided yet delicate flavor.
Suggestion: Stylish and versatile, cut into wafer-thin slices it is an excellent match with fresh vegetables as an ingredient in delicious salads. A joy to the palate on crispy-hot croutons with a trace of butter, or sprinkled and grated over pasta dishes.
