  3. What exactly is Bottarga The unique name was a borrowed

    word from Italian which originated from the Arabic word battarikh. The product came into existence through the novelty thoughts of some fishermen who aren’t ready to waste any part of the fish they caught. Bottarga is base from the roe pouch of grey mullet or bluefin tuna. Although Sardinians use mullet or tuna, there are other fish options such as weakfish, mackerel, swordfish, white seabass or any other similar species.

  5. Sauce Grate ¾ of the bottarga in a plate, add

    the chopped garlic and parsley, season it with chili and pepper. Slowly add the 3 tablespoons of olive oil to form a paste. Leave it for 30 minutes for the ingredients to breathe in their flavors.
  6. Bottarga Spaghetti • Bring a large pot of salted water

    to boil over high heat. When it is boiled, add the spaghetti, and cook until it is al dente. Remember the bottarga is salted, says Casa Albergo Positanonews, add a lesser salt than usual to the water. • • When it is cooked, drain the water from the pasta and keep a cup of the water. • • Add the remaining olive oil in a large pan and place it medium heat. Add spaghetti, black pepper, ground garlic, and the sauce prepared. Add some of the reserved cooking water if the sauce is too thick. Remove from the heat, put more bottarga, toss and turn to ensure it is well coated. • • Finally, grate a good amount of freshly grated bottarga on top of the meal and serve. • • The good rule of thumb is to avoid cooking bottarga, if you don’t want to miss the delicacies of its flavor says Casa Albergo Positanonews.
