  • 2 large stalks celery – peeled and thin sliced on a bias
  • 1 small handful yellow celery leaves (from the core of the celery bunch)
  • 1 small handful whole parsley leaves (flat italian)
  • 1/4 red onion – very thin sliced julienne
  • 2 soft boiled eggs (carefully peeled and halved – keep yolk side facing up)
  • 15-20 pieces thin bottarga “chips” (shaved pieces of bottarga di muggine, done on the thinnest setting of a Japanese mandolin)
  • Freshly squeezed lemon juice, salt, pepper and olive oil to taste
  • Freshly toasted coarse bread crumbs
  1. Toss celery, leaves, parsley, and onion in a bowl with lemon, olive oil, salt and pepper.
