I have an emotional bond to this dish, which harks back to days spent on the Tuscan coast and to the first memory of a bottarga, with my mother expertly choosing the piece that would give her our fullest appreciation for this new flavour.
Bottarga is a cured fish roe, enjoyed throughout the Mediterranean. If you cannot find bottarga, use another roe, such as cod roe.
Wonderful! I used bottarga di Muggine from Sardinia. - 27 Oct 2015
