Amber-coloured grains with a typical sea odour. An explosion of flavour with a typical bitter aftertaste.

Perfect to enrich your fish recipes, recommended for spaghetti with clams

Mullet Roe Bottarga is obtained from the eggs of mullet fish. Once dried and cured, it has a golden or amber colour and a savoury, salty taste with a hint of almond. Bottarga was once known as the ‘poor man’s caviar, but this does not do justice to this Mediterranean delicacy, appreciated by food lovers from the ancient Egyptian, Phoenician and Roman empires to the present day. I Pescatori di Orbetello have succeeded in integrating fishing and farming, the sale of fresh produce, and the preparation of processed products, tourism, and catering. All the fish comes exclusively from the Orbetello lagoon, where careful integrated management between fishing and the environment guarantees the freshness of the product. Ancient fishing techniques, the result of centuries of experience and climatic conditions, sometimes cannot guarantee the immediate availability of the product, which will be delivered anyway. Slow Food has recognized the work of I Pescatori as a model to follow and has designated the Bottarga di Orbetello and Palamita del Mare Toscano as its Presidia.

After the order we prepare it in 24-48 hours and shipping within Europe usually takes 3 to 5 days if all products are available.

If a product is listed in the cart as “Available on backorder” the timing increases by 48h because we have to receive it from the manufacturer itself.

Our priority is to pack and ship the products as safely as possible. Wine and oil bottles are shipped with special cardboard protections, there will be no breakages.

All cold cuts and cheeses are vacuum sealed. In summer we also use dry ice and coolers to keep products fresh and their quality intact.
