Bottarga is Having a Moment

26548d7b-f35a-441a-85f0-4bba2ad26f1eHave you ever searched #bottarga on Instagram? We highly recommend that you do. The results are numerous and ridiculously mouthwatering. Not to mention inspirational.

You can use Bottarga in so many ways. No recipes needed. Here are some of our favorites: basic fennel salad, risotto, last minute egg style, pizza, keeping it simple, with artichokes.

Here’s what you need to know about whole Bottarga:

  • Whole Bottarga is a fish’s egg pouch after it has been dried and cured.
  • It lasts forever (well, practically) in your fridge.
  • You can make dozens of meals with just one Bottarga.
  • To prep it, just pull back the outer layer and grate or slice, ready to eat!
  • Mullet Bottarga from Sardenga has a delicate sea flavor and is best paired with this EVOO.
  • Tuna Bottarga from Sicily is more rare and has an intense umami taste, it’s best paired with this EVOO.

    Ciao Anna, grazie di cuore for your kind message!

    Bottarga is still having a moment; we can’t say the same for that link, which probably has since expired…

    Mullet bottarga pairs quite well with almost all our EVOOs, but the most suitable is undoubtedly Antichi Uliveti from Sardegna!
