Bottarga 130g Salumi Australia
Bottarga has a long history and has been enjoyed by Sardinians as far back as the Byzantine period. It is the salt cured, pressed and dried roe of Mediterranean fish such as mullet or tuna. Bottarga is often served as thin slices with olive oil, lemon juice and bread for an appetiser or grated over pizza and pasta dishes for a delicious umami flavour. Australian chefs have embraced the Sardinian delicacy in recent years, but beyond its reputation in the kitchen, Bottarga has several other potent features that have earned it the Sardinian title of Viagra of the Sea.
