What is Botargo?
Golden powder that smells of sea water. This amber-coloured nectar is a gift to food lovers from Neptune – or from Mother Nature – one of many unexpected gifts. Botargo is made of the thousands of eggs that female mullets have in their egg sacks – it is one of the tastiest Sardinian foods. Salted, pressed and dried eggs. With a distinct yet delicate taste, velvety texture and a long aftertaste. Its colour ranges from golden yellow to golden reddish. A unique delicacy, with high nutritional value, is rich in Proteins, energy, Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamins C and E, Selenium and Zinc. Protected by a 100% natural beeswax to preserve its natural moisture. Use it sliced or grated.
