Tuna bottarga Florio – In olive oil, Handmade in Sicily

Made with selective and environmentally friendly fishing methods, it is the result of a long and meticulous artisanal process. Florio Tuna Bottarga is obtained from the eggs of yellowfin tuna, subjected to a processing period of at least 45 days, carried out by local artisans. The egg sac is seasoned with brine and pressed, massaged and salted repeatedly for 20 days before moving on to a further stage of salting and pressing for another 20 days. Finally, the bottarga is washed with fresh water and left to dry in natural ventilation for 4-8 days, after which it is hand-cut into small fillets and dressed with olive oil. The result is a product with an intense and unmistakable flavour, encapsulating the entire tradition and passion of Sicilian cuisine.
