If you like the Middeteranian cuisine you should well know the Botarga caviar (it can also be spelled like botargo or bottarga), for all others it will definitely be a real revelation of rich and intense flavor. This is not actually a caviar but a mullet roe that is salted with the brine right in the natural envelope then pressed and dried in the sun. It is an incredible product indeed that gives you an unforgettable culinary impression — an intense salty flavor that nearly makes you hear the seagulls screaming and feel the sprinkles of the sea water over your face.
Botarga is usually served as an appetizer with some drops of fine olive oil on it alternatively you can ground it over pasta, risotto or salads to give it a distinct seafood flavor. It is a kosher caviar.
