Bottarga (Batarekh) Premium Tuna roe
Tuna roe is widely produced in Sardinia.
The roe sacs are salted, pressed and dried. Much appreciated by gourmets, it becomes a superb ingredient when matched with skill and flair.
It can be served cut into wafer-thin slices and dressed with a dribble of extra-virgin olive oil, on warm crunchy croutons with cherry tomatoes, with fresh salads or grated and sprinkled over pasta dishes.
Its colour is uniform, varying from light to dark pink, its texture is compact and its flavour well-defined and intense.
