Tuna eggs in olive oil – Drago Conserve

Fish eggs are a valuable food for preparing delicious recipes. Despite being less valuable than caviar, tuna bottarga is a sought-after and refined ingredient, so much so that it is considered "Mediterranean caviar". Drago, a historic fish preserve company present in Syracuse since 1929, produces this bottarga according to the Sicilian tradition in a careful and scrupulous way. The tuna eggs are carefully extracted, washed, salted with sea salt and dried naturally. Once the correct drying has been achieved, the bottarga is floured and preserved with the addition of olive oil, without the use of preservatives and starches. Its intense flavor gives dishes that extra touch of flavour. A food appreciated not only because it is good but also because it is a source of proteins and Omega 3.

Ingredients: tuna eggs (thunnus albacares), olive oil, salt. May contain traces of pistachios, almonds

Use: tuna roe is a versatile ingredient in the kitchen that enriches recipes with flavour. Excellent on crostini and bread bruschetta with extra virgin olive oil or as a finishing touch in seafood risottos or vegetable side dishes. Try the spaghetti with tuna bottarga, i.e. the classic spaghetti with garlic, oil and chilli pepper sprinkled with tuna roe

How to use: the bottarga is used raw and should not be cooked but if necessary freshly heated because the heat would alter its flavor

Storage: after opening, store in the fridge and cover with a drizzle of oil, if necessary. Consume within 3 days
