Bottarga storage and serving suggestions

Storage instructions:

Do not remove the wax coating until ready to consume.

Always cut serving portions in width, using a sharp, serrated knife, then remove wax. Remove thin outer skin if desired.

Store remaining wax coated Boutargue in a zip lock bag or saran wrap in fridge. Do not freeze.

Suggested serving:

Boutargue is generally eaten as an appetizer. Slice thin, serve with a touch of olive oil and lime, accompanied by crackers and / or green olives.

Suggested spirits include: Arak, Pernaud, Anisette, Vodka, fig liquor or  Tequila.

If you intend to grate the boutargue to use on pasta or in other recipes, remove it from the wax a day or two before in order to dry it more.
