I have a question about the recipe "Celery Salad with Soft Boiled Egg and Shaved Bottarga" from Nickanderer. What is bottarga di muggine?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
its salted dried roe from the grey mullet...usually comes in a little compressed block that can be grated.

That little package of mullet roe will probably set you back close to $40. You can sometimes find dried bottarga in jars. It's not as good but unless you are a restaurant running through a lot of bottarga you probably don't want the big splurge.
