Whole Grey Mullet Bottarga 132-170g

  • Often grated sparingly in the manner of truffles over an omelette or pasta, bottarga can also be cut into very small wedges, sprinkled with lemon juice and served as an appetizer.


  • The term botargo derives from the Arabic “butarkhah”, literally meaning “fish egg inside its sack”. The Egyptians already produced botargo back in 3000 B.C., as the high quantities of Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (EPA and DHA) found in fish eggs were an important supply of food.
