Spaghetti with bottarga

spaghetti with bottarga

Hola people! While I’m writing this post finally there is a ray of sunshine!

Today I cooked spaghetti with bottarga I met for the first time thanks to a friend Sardinian who has kindly given me a long time ago, came directly from the original Sardinia!
The bottarga is a food made up of the gonads of the fish, whose eggs are salted and dried by conventional methods.
It’s obtained from the eggs of tuna or mullet.

I embellished with a spectacular Sicilian condiment made with chillies and spices that I was affectionately given to me by my friends, directly from Pantelleria!! So ‘here’s the great spaghetti with bottarga:
